On account of these goals, we have been trying to arrange a few initiatives of informal training in enhanced environment, built upon a cooperative task-based approach. This training model is meant to reskill educational professionals in technological advances, but also to grow teachers’ self-efficacy perceptions, which are important variables, affecting behavior and goal orientation, and are proved to predict intentions in ICT adoption.
Possible significant contribution in this model relies on two aspects: providing blended interactive environment for peer training; encouraging technological adoption in school by affecting teachers’ self-efficacy perception.
According to provisional results, teacher's needs for peer discussion, sharing and counselling have been answered by in-presence and virtual debate, as well as by focus group meetings; ICT perceptions have positively evolved after collaborative training and knowledge building practice. Conclusive findings analysis should also indicate whether the reinforcement of self-perception enhances teachers’ intention to implement and share pedagogical innovation within the school.
