This course aims to support teachers through the digital transformation and through the 21st-century challenges in digital education.

Are you ready to take up the challenge?

By going through short modules that clarify and allow gaining practice with a variety of digital tools, participants will discover effective ways to use educational apps and software.

  • Presenting content;
  • Designing graphic elements quickly and easily;
  • Creating interactive live lessons in a digital learning environment;
  • Online assessment and quizzes;
  • Managing a whiteboard online.

All modules will give time to participants to practice the proposed tools and to discuss and share experiences about their best use in the classroom.

By the end of the course, participants will feel more comfortable using digital technologies in their everyday teaching. They will make a step forward in the domain of digital education, and be closer to involving their students in more engaging interactive digital activities.
