IDEAS for developing Digital Skills | Observatory of Educational Innovation

"The web provides diverse spaces and opportunities for learning, since anyone can choose to empower themselves and decide what, how, when and where to learn, as well as what for" says Elvia Garduño Teliz, holds a B.Sc. in Public Accounting and Informatics, an M.A. in Educational Science, and is a Ph.D. in Pedagogy candidate from UNAM, Mexico.

The fundamental digital skills for entrepreneurship and learning are self-management, information management, creativity and collaboration on the Internet. But how can the development of these digital skills be fostered for lifelong learning? The Dimensional Integrations of Empowerment and Learning (IDEA as per its Spanish acronym) model is a techno-pedagogical alternative aimed at the development of these skills. 
“IDEA is a model that can be used by any teacher, researcher or student.”
The IDEA model integrates technology, pedagogy and didactics in flexible online educational proposals, hence its techno-pedagogical nature. Over three years, teachers, instructional designers, instructors and students, through research and practical experience, improved the model, having applied it mainly in the management of Digital Learning Objects (digital entities that present structured content, learning and evaluation activities), websites, blogs, infographics, graphic organizers, videos, WebQuest and online courses, demonstrating their practical experiences. Since this model is licensed by creative commons with derivative works, it can be used freely and free of charge to develop content in digital spaces and also to create MOOC courses.
“The IDEA model consists of four phases: design, production, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation.”
