Abstract: A current issue of teachers' continuous training in the Romanian secondary education is the identification and coping with the main problems they face during the teaching-learning-assessment activity in the classroom, from the perspective of the development of digital skills and using information and communication technology (ICT). Access to adequate ICT infrastructure is one of the most important factors contributing to the effective use of information technologies in all subjects and for all students. However, some infrastructure problems persist and these are hindering the integration of new technologies into teaching and learning. By transforming teaching and learning, ICT is considered to contribute to the acquisition of basic – or key – competences. The use of ICT by teachers can have various benefits, which may even be increased if students themselves are enabled to use ICT in the learning process. Teaching staff are the key players in strengthening and fostering the new digital environment in schools. This study is part of a training needs analysis, which aims to establish a professional training programme for teachers in primary and secondary education from the perspective of ICT implementation in teaching, and to improve students’ learning process.
