The course will introduce innovative pedagogical practices on how to integrate digital tools, including educational robotics, into teaching and learning practices.

These practices will support the development of educators’ digital competences as well as 21st-century skills in general, including entrepreneurial skills and a green mindset. The course days are divided into two: during the first half of the day there will be micro-learning modules, the second half of the day will be spent on active group work in order to design and test learning activities.

At the end of the course, the participant is familiar with innovative digital learning practices and innovative educational technology tools and creates digital learning materials in collaboration with other teachers.

Why this course?

  • Improved digital competences

  • A lot of new ideas about teaching and learning differently
