FULL DESCRIPTION OF TRAINING CONTENTS
IN THE LANGUAGE OF THE TRAINING: (EN)
The course participants will be invited to join an online community which will be set up for several purposes:
a) Participants will get to know each other before they actually meet for the course in Malta. This facilitates the course progress as participants would have already become familiar with each other.
b) The course leaders will participate and lead the discussion. This will enable fine-tuning of course content according to the participants' background.
c) Course participants will be able to discuss logistical issues such as travel and accommodation arrangements.
The course aims to present teachers with the potential that ICT offers them in their daily practice especially in their preparation of activities that are collaborative, and based on projects.
Most sessions will be of a hands-on practical nature. Participants will not only learn how to use the different features of the different ICT tools being presented, but they will be able to discuss how and in which situations a particular tool can be used instead of another. All sessions will be interactive, allowing for participants to explore the software being learnt in detail and discuss its application with other participants as well as with the course leaders.
The online community created as part of the pre-departure programme will continue to be used after the end of the course. Participants will be necouraged to share their experiences resulting from their participation in the course. The online community will also be used as a means of providing support to participants who find difficulty in implementing any of the ideas resulting from the course. Besides this, Smart Solutions Ltd. also offers support to participants through email and voice-conferencing.
