ICT skills - online

Computing and IT is required by all businesses and jobs in today’s world. Information and Communication technology (ICT) has the potential to transform teaching and learning processes. According to a recent study in OECD countries, students are more sophisticated in their use of technology than teachers; an inherent discrepancy between student knowledge and usage of ICTs with the abilities of teacher to use ICTs. This suggest that teacher inexperience and skill deficiencies may often be a fundamental factor which prevents the effectiveness of ICT use in education. The same study reveals that the most effective uses of ICT are those in which the teacher, aided by ICTs, may challenge understanding and thinking of pupils, and this can be done through whole-class discussions and/or individual/small group workshops using ICTs. Nowadays, it is widely accepted that the use of ICTs should not aim at completely transforming teacher practices in and of itself but rather enabling and supporting the move from traditional ‘teacher-centric’ teaching styles to more ‘learner-centric’ methods. In other words, making each one of the students active and fully engaged. The ‘ICT skills for Educators’ course is designed to enable participants to improve their teaching practices with the use of specific ICT tools, such as smart boards, web conferencing and webinars, among others, thus, creating a ‘learner-centric’ classroom.  This is an ideal course for all teachers, educators & trainers interested in continuing professional development (CPD).

Nýjustu umræður

Virk samfélagsleg þátttaka á efri árum og nám þvert á kynslóðir

Þegar litið er til lýðfræðilegra breytinga (demographic change) í Evrópu kemur í ljós að hlutfall eldra fólks í öllum Evrópusambandslöndunum er hátt og fer hækkandi. Þess vegna er afar áríðandi að boðið sé upp á hágæða námsefni, sem sniðið er að þörfum eldra fólks og að fólkið sjálft sé haft með í stefnumótun í símenntun og virkri þátttöku í samfélaginu.
