In schools, colleges and universities teachers and other educators have to make everyday decisions about the type of digital tools to use in various teaching situations, and to decide on how and why to use a specific tool or application. The aim of this online course is to provide a teacher training, which enables educators to make decisions that are more informed. Teachers, who participate in this online course, will get hands-on experiences, tools, and material on using digital media.
This teacher-training course is for you, who is interested in widening and bringing your knowledge of digital media use up-to-date. This online course is targeted for all teachers and educators irrespective of educational level, who are interested in starting using digital media in their teaching and who are in need of professional development and training in order to make the “digital jump”. The aim of this online course is to bridge the “digital gap” between the teachers and their learners.
The aim of this online course is to increase the use of digital media in education. We want to encourage you to take part in the whole course in order to benefit the most from it. The goal is to encourage you to use playful learning methods in order to help your students to learn more efficiently and creatively. We hope you will be inspired to support your students to innovate more, to solve complex problems, to access wider and more up-to-date knowledge, and to have more flexible and accessible learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.
