I got hands-on experience connected to critical and creative thinking, to ICT in education, and to students’ soft skills. I enjoyed having a set of concrete ideas on how to apply new teaching strategies to boost high-order skills in nowadays’ students.

Vidilina Ruseva

The course I have attended is ‘Integrating Creativity and Innovation into Teaching’, Florence/Italy, 12-16 October 2020. My mentor and at the same time course trainer was Mrs Cristina Salvatori. I had a great experience working on topics as follows: applying creative methods and innovative solutions into the classroom, the 4 Cs and the fostering of a positive school environment, integrate creativity in the classroom, new approaches for classroom technology, online tools to foster creativityq etc. Working in an international team opens new horizons for our pedagogical skills, the exchange of good practices inspires us and gives us confidence for new achievements together with our students. Collaboration and interaction during the course give us the stimulus we really need in this transitional and difficult moment of our work in an partially or completely online environment.

Ekaterina Haralampieva

I liked it so much! And it’s been so useful! The course was addictive and let me think about more involving lessons(…). The teacher was full of energy and enthusiasm and the colleagues very nice and gentle. The location in Barcellona is beautiful and practising English very useful too. I suggest it. 🙂

Alessandra Chiappini

This course offered me a lot of possibilities. I’ve learned new applications that I’ll apply in classroom. I learned how to apply creative and innovative methods. Now I have experience with critical and creative thinking.
