The rapid development of society has also influenced in the development of the education system. The school has undergone a change in system and structure, in programs and ideas. The scientific material that is offered and the pedagogic staff are the two solid pillars without which the school cannot stand. But the rapid development of technology and leaving aside the textbooks, the development and the importance of integrating contemporary methodologies, the spread of the online systems and the wide spread of internet usage and technological devices, have highlighted the need to resize these two important pillars. Also, the development of technology in education, the creation of new digital and effective platforms in the delivery of teaching, have found the pedagogical school staff unprepared and their knowledge acquired during their studies or their experiences are aging at the same speed, highlighting the inability to match teachers’ ICT competencies with those of students.
Meanwhile, in July 2018, Ministry of Education (MASR) decided to ban the use of mobile phones during the lessons in the schools all around the country. This decision was accompanied with many debates and objections. The modern teaching methodologies aim at raising the creativity, encouraging the innovations, independent and critical thinking.
Covid-19 brought to the forefront the teaching through technologies and the most used device was the mobile phone. From this point of view, besides the picture of the present situation, teacher’s knowledge and needs in Durres Region, related to the use of technology in the teaching process, this paper is a critical view towards these two lines, on one side the decision taken by the Ministry, and on the other side the teaching with modern methods, are these two parallel lines or do they exclude each other
In conclusion, this paper gives recommendations for a modern teaching and for the possibility to use technological gadgets, including mobiles or iPads, in order to have a more effective, attractive and comprehensive teaching process.
