Description: This course is specially designed for teachers who wish to start their journey into ICT (Information and Communication Technology) and incorporate their knowledge into the class. The objective of the course is to enable participants to introduce ICT into their classrooms and apply the skills acquired to make knowledge accessible through the use and creation of digital resources for teaching and learning. Participants will work with ICT tools for image and sound editing, collaboration, classroom management, online questionnaires, etc. This will lead to the creation of a safe and effective working environment that allows the creation of attractive and motivating digital materials for students.
At the same time, by being immersed in Irish society, history and culture, participants will have the opportunity to take advantage of what Dublin and Ireland offer to the active perception of teachers working within the framework of an Inquiry-based approach. Thus, participants may explore the Irish context from the perspective of their subject while having the opportunity to process and express their learning by means of their newly acquired ICT skills.
The implementation of this course is based on a BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop) approach in order to facilitate communication and collaboration among participants in an international course. To participate in this course a minimum B1 level of English is required.
