ICT Tools for School Administration and Non-Teaching Staff

Description

Concept by Riccardo Manni

Intermediate Computer Proficiency required. Read more »

Intermediate computer proficiency courses are designed for individuals who already have good understanding of technology. Participants will build upon their skills by learning how to use a variety of resources, including learning apps, Microsoft 365 apps, and photo and video editing platforms.

Erasmus+ encourages non-teaching staff from schools, VET providers, and organizations working in adult education to travel. Yet, most courses focus on the needs of teachers and educators leaving aside those of administrators and managers!

Shouldn’t they be offered the same occasion for traveling, too?

The course focuses on the needs of administrators and managers from organizations in the Erasmus+ program of updating their digital skills and understanding of information and communication technologies (ICT).

Participants will have the time to discover and – most importantly! – practice many apps and programs that are useful for the everyday work of school and organization staff not involved in didactics.

The course will thus offer a useful occasion for digital training to participants working in administration within educational organizations.

By the end of the course, participants will expand their competencies in using a variety of apps and programs to support their daily work and feel more confident in dealing with technology in their life.

Reviews about this course

Ailish Tobin
5 stars

Being a school secretary attending an ICT course, I was initially nervous about whether I would benefit from it. However, the teacher trainer was brilliant in adapting the course and including us, finding useful ways for us to utilize all the recommended apps. I am going back to my school with a wealth of useful information that we will definitely be able to use.

I liked the methods of teaching ICT technologies and outdoor activities and the way the lecturer presented information. Furthermore, the diversity of activities and a nice teaching environment and the choice of environment for their implementation. The coordinator was great.
