On the one hand, the contexts of educational centers are used as real scenarios of training and research and, on the other hand, the university collaborates with them in the creation of didactic material resources, innovative and adjusted to their needs. The improvement of the quality of the training of future teachers is, according to the latest government reports and the scientific literature, to offer more practical training. Combining theory and practice in real work contexts is a key element in training competent teachers. Specifically, we focus on the development of digital competence, which is a transversal competence of the curriculum of future teachers that must be included in the work of different grade materials. At the same time, it is a growing need in the training of teachers who are in schools to which an institutional response must be given.
