ICT Collaborative Tools: Project Management in Schools
Nowadays, there is an increasing need for digital skills to work in a network and/or team, on reports, jobs or various projects, with people in close proximity or even anywhere in the world, and it is becoming increasingly common for classic tools such as email and others to become obsolete.
Being able to exchange impressions and mature and make intrateam decisions on the spot, define objectives, timings, priorities and manage tasks, build contributions in real time, forms a core of essential and structuring skills in the production of work essential to the development of the education system and of all contexts in which it is necessary to improve the efficiency of teamwork.
This course is designed for trainers, school teachers, educators, or social workers from educational institutions or other organizations (such as NGOs or associations) who wish to learn about and put new digital tools to use in order to become better project administrators!
Participants will discover simple free-to-use apps (such as Trello or Asana) to manage a project’s timeline, assign tasks, and coordinate others’ work. They will learn how to manage documents and online drives for cataloguing a project’s documents. For example, they will discover how to share whiteboards, mind maps, and polls in online events to brainstorm ideas and collect feedback.
By the end of the project, participants will gain practical expertise with many apps and programs that will simplify and make more effective their work as project managers. They will feel more competent in employing the most appropriate digital tools in every phase of a project’s life.
