Target group

  • Teachers (pre-school, primary, secondary, vocational, adult, special needs)
  • For users of iPads, Android and Windows tablets. At this moment there are more educational apps for iPad and Android, but it doesn’t matter that much because the course focuses on didactical use of tablets in class.

The courses are focusing on pedagogical use of tablets in schools. Each participant needs to bring his own tablet and we expect that each participant has basic knowledge of using his tablet before the course. We don’t provide computers nor tablets.
