Ms. Eloni dos Santos Perin, Dra. Maria do Carmo Duarte Freitas, Violeta Cebrián Robles

Generating new knowledge requires professional development of teachers of basic education, with competencies to act according to the scientific-technological transformations of network communication. The objective of the research was to map existing and underdeveloped digital skills of Basic Education teachers in a Brazilian municipality. The analysis was performed by the triangulation of the literature with quantitative and qualitative data, obtained during self-evaluation of the teachers in Learning Workshops. The results show that the Technological, Information and Communication competencies are partially developed. Pedagogical competence was identified as least developed and Axiological as the most developed. The reasons given by teachers involve individual factors such as difficulties in the technology field and the integration of this into the curriculum, but also includes factors that interfere with professional self-development and the creation of digital content, such as lack of time for improvement, updating and equipment in the school training needs.
