Learning Apps is a web 2.0 application to support learning and teaching processes with interactive modules.
They can be used directly in learning materials, but also for self-studying and for creative content production. LearningApps include no specific framework or a specific learning scenario, so they are not suitable as complete lessons or tasks. Instead, they must be embedded in an appropriate teaching scenario.
This course aims to demonstrate how useful LearningApps are in teaching many subjects. We would like to show how easy it is to create interactive learning modules with templates of the website. We are going to explain how to collect reusable building blocks and make them accessible to everyone. We would like to show how to make teaching playful with LearningApps by using innovative teaching methods.
By the end of the course, participants will gain greater insight into using LearningApps. They will learn how to integrate the interactive learning modules into lessons to motivate their students in the learning process. Participants will also learn how to get inspired by visiting a museum. Upon completion of the course, they will learn more about the history and art of Florence and about famous artists of the city and its surroundings.
The online web-tool LearningApps will be used during the course.
Participants are asked to bring their own devices: laptops, tablets, mobile phones.
The course will help the participants to understand how to:
- Create interactive learning modules with LearningApps;
- Integrate these modules into the teaching process;
- Stimulate students with playful apps;
- Use innovative teaching methods;
- Incorporate museum experience into the teaching/learning process.
- Teachers (primary, secondary, vocational, adult, special needs);
- Company staff;
- Managers of schools.
