Adult educator, is digitalization making you anxious?

Join us for the international seminar of the IDEAL project, to be organized in Paasitorni, Helsinki, on Friday 14 October, and be encouraged to use more ICT related methods to support your own work! 

The objective of the seminar is to share practical tools on how to integrate ICT/digital methods in teaching adults with immigrant backgrounds. You belong to the target group of the seminar if you are:

The keynote speaker will be Russell Stannard from the UK, a founder of the popular site Russell has been awarded several times for his work in technology and training. In his talk Russell will highlight simple, practical tools and methods which every teacher will be able to try.

In the afternoon you can participate in one of the short workshops related to digital methods in teaching. Our international partners of the IDEAL project from Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Ireland, and Norway will lead these workshops.
