FULL DESCRIPTION OF TRAINING CONTENTS
IN THE LANGUAGE OF THE TRAINING: (EN)
Bring some learning material which you can work on during the training sessions.

Option 1: Think about a classroom situation: one single hour, maximum 3 hours or a period of time (excursions, project work, etc.)and how learning processes could be improved by using/offering digital media (visualizations, podcasts …). Prepare some raw material and take it with you to Urbino on an USB-stick or a CD-ROM.
Option 2: Take pictures during the trip to Urbino with your digital camera (or cell phone, digital video camera, …) if available and make notes about your impressions or aspects you are interested in.

We will use this materials for hands-on exercises.
Familiarise yourself with the TACCLE book which will be sent to participants before the course starts. This handbook will be available in 7 languages: Dutch, French, Italian, English, Spanish, Portuguese and German.
To enable teachers from all over Europe to exploit the ICT resources available for introducing blended eLearning in their teaching. We especially want to empower teachers to create materials for learning environments (LMS or LCMS) for youngsters / adults such as Moodle, Dokeos, Fronter etc. Learning objectives include:
•Know the core concepts and methodologies of e-learning
•Develop a learning path
•Use eXe to create learning objects
•Insert/edit embedded media or a weblog into a learning path
•Export eXe projects as web packages ready for publishing to the web
•Export eXe projects as SCORM packages for publishing to SCORM compliant learning management systems (LMS)
•Decide between verbal and pictorial representations
•Apply general design principles to text and the interaction of text and illustrations
•Select – Organize – Integrate
•Create and know about audio podcast, screencast and video podcast
Basic skills will be trained along with more advanced exercises and the new pedagogical and didactic approaches enabled by ICT will be addressed. The topics will be introduced in a short lectures followed by extensive hands on activities. Training material will be available in English.
A moodle platform will be created to be used by the participants before, during and after the course. The learning objects created during the course will be shared on this platform. A communication platform will be provided for the participants to discuss the in-service training after it has ended and to exchange further experiences and materials.
