New advances in technologies make up one of the main premises of the 21st century. Studies carried out highlight the importance of making good use of this type of technology to obtain positive results in its application. In the educational field, the need to possess skills that guarantee correct and effective use is emphasized. Due to these demands, the present work was born: the study of teaching competence, according to the Spanish Common Framework of Reference for Teaching Digital Competence, to solve the existing problems among teachers of different educational stages within the competence area of innovation and use of the digital technology. In it, the knowledge and use of these digital resources are shown, as well as the online teacher training and the innovation projects carried out. For this, a descriptive study was carried out on 233 non-university faculty submitted to a self-assessment questionnaire. The results show that the majority has a basic-intermediate level in the knowledge and use of classical technological resources and spaces. It is relevant as these present certain difficulties in more complex tasks. Due to this, it is proposed to start different lines of research, according to the training needs in Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
