Abstract: The aim of this paper is to present a qualitative multiple case study research on primary school teachers’ competence and confidence level regarding the use of ICT in the teaching and learning practice carried out in five different European countries (Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain and The Netherlands). Focus group interview was the central data collection technique used in this study . As a result from the data analysis some important issues emerged which gave rise to four main dimensions - individual factors, contextual factors (at macro and micro levels) and factors related with teacher training andeducation. These factors may function as anchor-points (main categories) for the elaboration of the instruments for further research.
The project IPETCCO aims at understanding the potential for ICT-based innovation for Southern European primary school teachers. The central concern is with teachers´skills, knowledge and attitudes towards ICT and innovation. The objectives include: - a review into the curricular structures of four Southern European countries with the aim of identifying the curricular space for innovation; - an in-depth investigation into the current situation regarding the application of ICT in the learning/teaching practice; - an in-depth investigation into the competence and confidence levels of a sample group of primary school teachers; - an analysis, clustering and dissemination of project outputs.
