Concept by: Layla Dari

Description

The​ ​course​ ​has​ ​been​ ​created​ ​for​ ​teachers,​ ​and​ ​other​ ​school​ ​staff​ ​members,​ ​interested​ ​in ​using​ ​ICT​ ​in​ ​their​ ​teaching,​ ​but​ ​who​ ​don’t​ ​quite​ ​know​ ​where​ ​to​ ​start.​ ​The​ ​course aims​ ​to​ ​give​ ​concrete​ ​examples​ ​and​ ​ideas on​ ​how​ ​to​ ​use​ ​technology​ ​and​ ​different​ ​apps​ ​at​ ​school in a ​Student-Centered​ ​Classroom.

The​ ​main goal of this course is inspiring ​participants on how to effectively integrate ICT into their teaching,​ ​in​ ​a​ ​way​ ​that​ ​places​ ​the​ ​pupils​ ​in​ ​the​ ​center​ ​of​ ​the​ ​learning​ ​process. Participants​ ​will learn simple, tested​ ​, and effective ​examples​ ​from​ ​real​ ​school​ ​life on how to use technological​ ​devices​ ​and​ ​apps in education.​ ​

The​ ​course has been developed by trainers from ​Finland,​ ​where​ ​the​ ​new​ ​national​ ​curriculum emphasizes​ ​the​ ​use​ ​of​ ​ICT​ ​as​ ​a​ ​tool​ ​for​ ​student-centered​ ​and​ ​cross-curricular​ ​learning.​ ​

The​ ​course​ ​will​ ​explore​ ​the​ ​following​ ​topics:​ ​group​ ​work​ ​and cooperation in the ​Student-Centered​ ​Classroom,​ ​class​ ​management​ ​with​ ​Google​ ​Classroom,​ ​the different​ ​stages​ ​of​ ​the​ ​learning​ ​process,​ ​taking​ ​notes, the​ ​revision​ ​of learning, the rewarding​ ​systems,​ ​​ ​the collaboration​ ​between colleagues,​ ​coding​ ​and​ ​gaming,​ ​class​ ​breaks​, the​ ​creation​ ​of​ ​teaching material​ ​and​ ​presentations.

By​ ​the​ ​end​ ​of​ ​the​ ​course, ​participants​ ​will​ ​have​ ​gathered​ ​a​ ​great​ ​deal​ ​of​ ​personal experience​ ​in​ ​using​ ​different​ ​apps​ ​and​ ​devices​ ​and​ will have​ ​greater​ ​confidence​ ​and​ ​courage​ ​to use​ ​them​ ​in​ ​their​ ​work.
