Description

The course has been created for teachers who wish to learn more about the use of IT and communication technology in their classrooms. 

Participants will take part in small practical group tasks which will show them how to incorporate technology into their lessons to make them more effective and enjoyable. Emphasis will be placed on the most popular social media, as well as on new Web platforms for education. 
We will also learn about privacy and the safe use of social media, student versus teacher roles, and digital classroom management. 

By the end of this course, participants will know how to use social networking platforms and web 2.0 to share their work, create groups, use free resources and apps, and cooperate with others online.

We learned a lot new skills and theories and how to uplift our self esteem and our students. One of the best moments of the course were Critical thinking and Decision making while Collaborating based upon various models such as the 6 Hat Model or the Jigsaw model for example. We met wonderful colleagues from Spain, Portugal, Hungary and many other foreign colleagues during break time , exchanged our mails and we already keep in touch with them.
