ICT BASED CLASSES

“Integrating ICT Tools To The School Curriculum”

This course is a kind of teacher training course which aims to support school staffs with ICT (Information and Communication Technology) based learning in their personal and professional development and school environment in line with priorities of Erasmus Plus Program.
