The project "The teacher -creator of educational software" has received the green light in order to run for another 12 months period. The main motivation was the positive impact the educational software carried out by the teachers participating in the course "Design of the educational software" has had over the teaching staff and on the pupils.

Following the development of the training sessions in the period of October 2010 - June 2011, the participating teachers have succeeded to create educational software that would improve the access to lifelong, modern, quality education and training. The experiences resulted from the actual work with pupils have been shared on the occasion of the National Conference of the participants in the training program and have been the starting point for the decision to extend the project.

For the following period, will be supported activities of good practices exchange, by promoting the educational software carried out during the project at national and international.

As a result of the outstanding interest expressed by the participants in the target group for the National Projects Competition, as well as of the outstanding results obtained within the first edition, organization of a new edition of the competition is taken into consideration.

All these activities will be supported by the project?s portal, to be further administered and updated.

The portfolios of the 1,686 teaching staff from the pre-university education who have graduated the course "Design of the educational software" have been published on the portal of the project "The teacher -creator of educational software": www.profesorulcreator.ro, opening the possibility of creating a virtual community through which is encouraged the exchange of ideas. This virtual community will allow the teaching staff from the pre-university education to benefit from valuable resources for the ITC use in the teaching process.

The project carried out through a partnership between the Ministry of Education, Research, Youth and Sport, and SIVECO Romania SA contributes to achieving the objectives of specific to Priority Axis No. 1 within the program POS DRU 2007-2013 by improving the access to education and modern, quality, lifelong training.
