INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES (ICT's), WEB APPLICATION, SOCIAL NETWORKS & ONLINE TOOLS FOR A NEW EDUCATION

COURSE INFORMATION

 

ICT’s course is aimed for teachers and school staff from pre-school level to primary, secondary, vocational, adult and special needs education, staff of non-government organizations, government and policy makers and company staff. Participants are expected to have at least B1 level of English proficiency.

 

One of the strengths of the course lies in the presentation and use indeed of the iPad and other devices and a great range of educational apps to use in the classroom. Moreover, the course will focus on THE USE AND LEARNING OF NEW TECHNOLOGIES in the classroom, with special focus on the use of tablets as iPads or similar ones and discovering new apps but the achieve of all new knowledge as well. One of the goals of the course is to enable participants to introduce news technology (ICT) in classroom and apply the acquired skills to make knowledge accessible. We could do that in different ways such as by discovering and creating digital resources for teaching and learning. Students will work with modern technology to explore image and sound editing, the making of interactive presentations, the creation  of online and offline games activities, etc. All these activities and tools will help a lot of subjects such as mathematics, science, languages, etc., so interdisciplinary will be used as part as the digital resources.

METHODOLOGY

ICT’s course is based on theoretical and especially on practical lessons and presentations of examples of good practice as well as discussions and experience comparisons. The course will have lectures, seminars and workshops to ensure full comprehension and every day assingnment support. Every day will add new information about new devices, apps, programs, etc., and will create new links to strenghten future common projects. Moreover, participants will also have the opportunity to enjoy interactive and collaborative group class. In addition, teachers will always have time to asess the information and the student’s job and redefine the contents and ways of working in order to improve the student’s skills.

Our experienced trainers will support and stimulate the networking and cooperation among participants. We organize networking, cultural, sport and historical activities in order to give participants the opportunity to exchange best-practices and establish professional cooperation and links. These activities are a very good example of how to organise activities in a possible common future KA2 project. In these activities will take part not only participants of the course but also other participant from differents courses attended by the company. The expected training activity has been structured so that the participants can transfer know-how and develop needed skills once they return to their school with their own students.

 

In the end of the course, the company will provide the participants an attendance certificate including the detailed information about the course, e.g. title, programme and schedule. In addition, a Europass Mobility Certificate can be added on request.
