Description

This course is designed for teachers who would like to further their knowledge on the use of ICT in class and to experiment with new enjoyable tools. The course will focus on web solutions such as Edmodo, Google educational tools, online Quizzes, and others.

During the course, participants will learn by doing: working in groups, they will have the opportunity to test different tools directly, and to share examples about how to use them in class.

The techniques acquired in the course will enable teachers to make their lessons more engaging for their students, thus making them more effective.

Upon the completion of the course, teachers will be aware of the strengths and weaknesses of many different ICT tools, and will know how to exploit them in the classroom in a safe and useful way.

Reviews about this course

I attended this very useful course in the stunning Barcelona. Very excellent experience to learn more about ICT tools and to exchange your own knowledge and skills with other colleagues from other countries. Thank you!

Ljiljana Fišić

A very useful course, motivating trainers, positive atmosphere! During the sessions you actually learn how to use ICT tools through hands-on exercises, so that you can go back to your classroom inspired, as well as curious to propose new tasks to your students!

Martha Swenn

I attended this very useful course in stunning Florence. We learned a lot about classroom management and motivating ICT tools. Iacopo was a skilled and humorous trainer especially during the city tour about Florentine food and culture. The full-day excursion to Tuscany was well organized as well. Thank you for the experience!
