Tablets and Smartphones: Using Mobile Devices as Educational Tools


Concept by Robert Schwamborn

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.

The course has been created for participants interested in Technology Enhanced Learning and M-learning: they will discover how laptops, tablets, and smartphones can be integrated into a teacher’s toolkit.

During this training course, participants will get fresh ideas on how to incorporate technology into their lessons and they will work in small groups to carry out practical tasks.

They will learn how to use software, platforms, and apps to communicate, manage groups, and foster collaboration. They will also have the chance to experience how learning can be enhanced by using serious technological games and quizzes.

By the end of the course, teachers will be more inspired to use ICT tools in a motivating and pedagogical way.

During the course, I had the opportunity to discover new apps like Nearpod and Genially, which proved to be valuable tools for enhancing student engagement and interaction. Exploring these apps expanded my technological repertoire and opened up exciting possibilities for creating interactive and visually appealing educational content. Additionally, I greatly appreciated the positive learning environment fostered by the students. The collaborative and supportive atmosphere created by fellow participants contributed to a stimulating and enriching learning experience.

This was my first experience with Europass and I'm much more than satisfied. Everything was very clear and understanding. Communication with people from Europass was correct and always on time. I started my trip to Florence with all needed informations. Europass will always be my first choice in future when I will go to courses. People from Europass are very kind and friendly and they are always there to help you or answer all questions you have, very important thing is that they do it always with smile on their faces.
