ICT as a Life Skill for European Adults and Seniors 20.-24.11.2017 - KA1 structured course in FINLAND

Gepost door Tuija Hyvönen 3 jaar 2 maanden geleden

maandag 20 november 2017 tot vrijdag 24 november 2017

The five-day training course at Sastamalan Opisto, Sastamala Community College (SCC) in Finland is varied and substantial mixture of pedagogy, practice and benchmarking, as well multicultural (Finnish-Spanish) peer-to-peer exchange of personal experiences and good practices in the topics of Seniors’ Life Skills and ICT (using a smartphone and/ or tablet, for instance) as well as ICT assisted learning in an older age.

The course is based on the principles of learning by doing and benchmarking; the participants will have the chance to witness the ICT-life span of a Finn; they will visit a primary school where pupils use tablets in learning, secondary and upper-secondary school classes and finally Finnish community college classes for seniors. They will have the chance to compare a traditional computer class with a BYOD-class (Bring Your Own Device) and study how that affects both learning and teaching.

The tutoring and coaching during this training course is mainly in English, partly also in Spanish. The course aims to increase and facilitate the use of digital tools such as Edmodo (has a Spanish version), online networking application, and Padlet as a virtual blackboard and communication tool, with a multitude of other Apps. One of the workshops will deal with the pedagogical methods and digital teaching model of Skype as a classroom (in Spanish). Furthermore, the course will introduce a model of personalized learning of ICT for senior citizens with user-generated context, carried out at SCC in a private teaching course format called “IT-Clinic for Seniors”.

Please note; the training language is English, but one training session is in Spanish. The course includes school visits to Finnish primary, secondary and upper-secondary schools. The training already has registration and therefore will be carried out. It has a limited number of places left.

If you are interested, please contact for the detailed course agenda.
