Digital Education Tools for Beginners

Description

Concept by Alenka Miljević

Basic Computer Proficiency required. Read more »

Basic computer proficiency courses are designed for individuals who have limited experience with technology. Participants will learn fundamental skills such as navigating the web, and using basic programs.

Despite promoting the need to digitalize education, even nowadays many educational systems still provide little support and training on the matter to school teachers.

Consequently, many teachers still lack confidence in using AI tools in their classrooms. Unfortunately, the pace of change in the digital world discourages them from making the first move.

This course will help teachers with basic digital skills to step into the world of apps and tools for digital education.

By discovering how to use software and apps to fulfill their students’ needs, participants will increase their confidence in artificial intelligence, and learn simple and effective strategies to improve their (digital) teaching.

During the course, the participants will gain hands-on experience on the impact of digital technologies on online collaboration and communication in the school environment from both the teacher’s and the student’s perspectives.

Through practical tasks and active participation, they will learn why, and how to digitalize their teaching materials with simple, user-friendly apps. They will also be given tips and tricks on the use of Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, and learn how to create videos for expanding their teaching possibilities.

The course will also provide step-by-step guidance on how to create simple quizzes and digital games, and on how to plan online lessons to engage students. Finally, participants will discover some useful apps for assessing student achievements.

By the end of the course, the participants will understand the purpose of using artificial intelligence in education and its impact on both teaching and learning. They will be ready to go back to their classrooms with a handful of digital tasks and activities created by themselves.
