The education system is facing the permanent challenge to adapt to the constantly changing
states in science, technology, and economy, and it plays an important role in the overall society development
and socio-economic progress. In order to establish a high-quality, efficient education system, it
is necessary to develop the teaching staff competences in accordance with the innovations in the education
field. The quality of the teaching process largely depends on the extent to which modern teaching
methods are applied, which are, in the contemporary context, based on the use of the information and
communication technologies in the teaching process (ICT). Following the technology advancement and
the information channels transformation, the role of the teacher has changed, and in this new context
the teacher is assigned with a new role of the “teaching manager”, or the leader of the teaching process.
This paper shows comparative analyses of the relations between the teaching stuff ICT training
and the organisation of the teaching process, when observed in traditional and online teaching settings.
The research was conducted in Serbia in January and February of 2021, during the Covid-19 pandemic,
and included the sample of teachers who work in primary schools (N=609).
