Recently a transformation has been generated in education due to the use of communication and information technologies (ICT). From this transformation, teachers are expected to develop new knowledge and skills for the use of technology. The purpose of this research is to analyze the use of ICT in the teaching-learning process by secondary level teachers in order to establish strategies for the development of teaching-oriented digital competencias. A descriptive, analytical and transversal research methodology was used in this study, and a questionnaire was applied with a scale of assessment of digital competences considering three dimensions: instrumental competencies, didactic-methodological and cognitive competences. This questionnaire was applied to a total of 124 teachers from two secondary education institutions in the 10-04 district of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The results show that 47 % of teachers require training in digital didactic-methodological skills, 39 % in cognitive and 32 % in instrumental. Based on these results, it is concluded with the need to establish a training plan considering the competences in which the lowest results were obtained as priorities.

Keywords : teacher training; integration; teaching-learning processes; didactic resources; ICT.
