Location: Malaga | Duration: 5 days

Summary

 

In the technology era, apart from putting digital boards the classroom, uploading documents into a website and browsing for some information, technology hasn´t deeply transformed education yet. However, a huge transformation or investment is not necessary, a lot can be achieved only by taking advantage of the devices that the students already carry with them and have at home.

Facing ICT in classroom and using the extraordinary, maybe even overwhelming, amount of resources available in the web is quite challenging for teachers.

The scope of this course will cover all the stages creating a Digital Classroom, from research to assessment, in order to facilitate the teacher’s job.

It is necessary that the participants bring their laptops with them.

Methodology

The methodology applied during the course is ‘learning by doing’, in the way of a guided tutorial. The teacher, after explaining briefly some concepts and an approach to the tools needed, proposes a project in which the students will have to create some educational resources for the classroom. The teacher becomes then a support, helping students on their learning experience. There will be a test to assess the learning outcomes.
