Learn the latest skills
The course Classroom in My Back Pocket offers you best practice approaches and practical examples for using m- devices, innovative tools and platforms in lessons and education.
The latest global challenges have demonstrated the huge adaptability and resourcefulness of everyone in the education sector in reimagining the use of everyday technology to provide continuity of learning in very challenging and critical circumstances. Slowly, as parts of life and society begin to move forward, the experiences and difficulties of teaching remotely have helped us as educators develop digital skills and approaches to learning that have enable us to present learning opportunities more effectively and in a way that the idea of “a classroom in my back pocket” becomes a distinct possibility. This course looks to further develop ideas of creating a platforms that can be used by an individual teacher or a school to host and present a content that can be accessed and responded to by students at any time, in any setting with any device
The lead-in A Classroom in My Back Pocket course is conducted over two sessions with additional tasks to help reinforce and develop both practical skills and strategic vision for using mobile technology for creative curriculum content delivery.
The added value of the course is that it offers partner search possibilities for KA1, KA2 and eTwinning activities.
Upskill your organization
Target group are the school management, teachers and all other non-teaching experts and staff working in school education and VET.
The lead-in course covers a wide range of topics that schools need to consider and tackle when introducing/updating and securing digitalization in their school:
- Innovative tools that help to drive and upskill teachers’ digital skills and strategy in order to create and distribute engaging curriculum content that can be delivered purposely to students at home or in school.
- Reinforcement and development of both, practical skills and strategic vision for using mobile technology for creative curriculum content delivery.
- Creation of platforms to be used by an individual teacher or a school to host and present a content that can be accessed and responded to by students at any time, in any setting with any device
The course methodology aspires creating an output. Working individually or in groups on a concrete product to be used in your own school, such as creating platforms for distant teaching etc. Participants are given time to develop these outputs and the trainers coach and support them throughout the week, if necessary even long after courses have finished as a follow up.
