Description

This course has been created for teachers who would like to learn about online applications and online environments that boost collaborative work and creativity such as Padlet, Slido, Plot Generator, or Canva, to name a few.

During this course, the participants will gain hands-on experience in using and creating content in each application, with ample time for reflection and discussion on their strengths and weaknesses, and possible application in their teaching contexts.

The skills acquired in this course will help teachers to make their classes more engaging by involving students in exciting collaborative projects, or creative online activities.

Special emphasis will be put on web solutions and applications that foster inclusivity (allow students with different learning needs and abilities to fully participate) and sustainability (promote paper-free and effective use of school resources).

By the end of this course, the teachers will be able to recognize the strengths and weaknesses of each ICT tool and will know how to integrate them into their classroom.
