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 Spanish society, history and culture, participants will have the opportunity to take advantage of what Jaén n and Spain offer to the active perception of teachers working within the framework of an Inquiry-based approach. Thus, participants may explore the Spanish 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.
Madrid is the gorgeous and lively capital city of Spain. Madrid is known for its friendliness and for having an impressive abundance of art and culture. The Paseo del Prado and El Retiro Park are the first urban historical landscape declared by UNESCO a World Heritage site in Europe as "Landscape of Art and Science” as they house major cultural landmarks. The unrivalled concentration of museums, caring for the most famous and decisive paintings of the world's history of art, makes this urban complex the most important and beautiful art gallery in the world!
It is said "From Madrid to heaven, there couldn't be anything better in between.", but meanwhile, from Madrid you can easily reach most important historical and artistic enclaves such as Toledo, the ancient capital of Spain, an example of the coexistence of Christian, Jewish and Arab culture in past times; El Escorial, the artistic pantheon of the Spanish Royal Family; or Segovia, with its magnificent aqueduct, representing the presence of the Roman Empire in Spain.
