Abstract: Empirically-based and theoretical approaches to the question how to prepare young people to succeed in the conditions of global knowledge economy argue for a more pronounced role of formal education in developing students’ e-skills. Programs for developing teachers’ competencies to integrate digital media in their subject teaching can be seen as a key measure toward developing students’ e-skills through formal education. Findings from the evaluation of a large-scale program for professional development in Germany - Intel ® Teach - Advanced Online reveal that using technology in class in learner-centered contexts by teachers had a positive effect on students’ motivation and skills for using digital media and collaboration. Teachers reported less effect on students’ active participation in class.
