A solution to improve the students’ interest for science study assumes ICT tools introduction in the teaching process. The SOP HRD 61839 project “Looking Towards the Future – Professional Training of the Teaching Staff to Use Modern Digital Resources in Efficiently Teaching of Chemistry e-Chemistry”, financed from the European Social Fund aims to develop ICT skills for professors who teach chemistry and technology-related subjects in the K-12 system. Even if computer usage in the learning-teaching processes is very successful, putting it into practice is rare in Romania. The project included two training components: a five-day module for developing basic IT skills and an eleven-day module for applying the newly acquired skills in chemistry teaching. A set of educational pilot resources were developed and used intensively during the training sessions organized in all 41 counties and capital of Romania. Although the project has its own learning content management system suitable for online and offline training activities, all sessions were face-to-face organized in order to offer a maximum tutorial support to participants. The digital resources are focused on main subjects from organic, inorganic, analytic, physical chemistry and electrochemistry, being presented to the target group by trainers from the University Politehnica of Bucharest and University Politehnica of Timisoara. Since July 2011 until May 2012 more than 2500 trainees completed the two training programs. e-Chemistry is supposed to bring together people who experience similar difficulties in their teaching activity and are eager for finding solutions to teach more, better and faster.
