Description

This course is designed for teachers who would like to further their knowledge of 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.

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!
