Many teachers and educators feel overwhelmed by technology today, or would like to use it more, but don’t know how or where to start. The aim of the course is to enable participants to use ICT in class and apply the acquired skills to exploiting and creating ICT resources for teaching and learning. The course is specifically designed to help teachers of various fields of education to increase their skills in using technology in their lessons by showing them – in a simple way! – incorporating free Web 2.0 tools in their teaching.
During the course, the participants will learn how to: create blogs; use wikis; use social networking and other ICT tools like video editing; create simple and efficient presentations online. These tools will support and enhance language, mathematics, science, etc. teaching and learning, through interdisciplinary inquiry and the use and creation of digital teaching resources. The overall objective is to modernize and innovate school staff methodology, in order to make schools more attractive for students.
Participants will get involved in small practical group tasks exemplifying how to incorporate technology into their lessons in order to be more effective and enjoyable.

The main aspect of the course is to promote collaboration between participants. Lessons will be held in our labs and all around the city as the main objective is to learn while having fun. Our approach is to centre the teaching process in practical rather than theoretical knowledge. The course is designed to enhance learning from practice. All trainers are experienced in implementing European projects and digital competencies.
