The course is intended for anyone with a desire to increase their proficiency in bringing technology into the classroom with the help of itec- In iTEC (Innovative Technologies for Engaging Classrooms, 2010-2014), European Schoolnet worked with education ministries, technology providers and research organisations to transform the way that technology is used in schools. The course content is not limited to teachers of a specific subject. On the contrary it is open to teachers of all subjects and levels.

Methodology

The practical course on European Project Planning helps individuals and organizations increase their efficiency rates on successful projects and create a strong European partnership for future collaboration. Participants will have the way paved for the interpretation of the documents for developing an effective project idea and will work on projects within small groups. Practical simulations will be carried out based on the use of the services, database and documentation by the EU.

The pedagogical approach underlining this choice is that the training main objective is to support networking and knowledge sharing among teachers and learning facilitators in Europe and by giving them the opportunity to mutual exchange. Course work will contain a mix of theoretical and practical knowledge. Participants will be given the theoretical information that they need to effectively create and implement their own learning solutions when implementing ICT and Web 2.0 within the classroom. Using this theoretical knowledge, they will then complete several practical tasks designed to create a digital classroom.

 

Target Group

  • All kind of teachers, trainers, educators etc.

 

Preparation

Before the course,

  • A detailed pre-course questionnaire to indicate their level of experience, teaching backgrounds and training will be completed by participants.
  • They will also prepare a presentation to reflect their own teaching method.

 

Validation

  • A course participation certificate will be given to all participants.
  • A Europass CV will be filled together according skills and competences gained   during the course by participants.

 

Follow up

Anatolia Education and Consulting will support partnerships originated during the training course to develop their project ideas. After training, participants will have the opportunity of keeping in touch via on-line helping them giving birth to a virtual network of professionals. The trainer will also tutor the practical tasks assigned to participants after the course.
