Audiovisual Tools for the Digital Teacher

Course summary

Porto, Portugal

6-day Course

Erasmus+ KA1

Being raised in a digital era, today’s students may find conventional pursuits like reading to be incredibly monotonous while naturally focusing much more on audiovisual information (e.g., videos, photos, and audio resources). Therefore, educators can sometimes feel unprepared when attempting to teach students in a new media language.

This course has been designed for educators who want to use audiovisuals (including video production) to enhance student engagement and foster collaboration.

By introducing the participants to the pedagogical power of audiovisual information, this course seeks to close the gap. 

The course’s programme structure will cross the different areas of audiovisual tools, audio production, digital video production and concept and digital image management focused on teachers’ and educators’ jobs related to the work in the classroom.

By the end of the course, teachers will feel confident in using a variety of online resources, video and photography technologies to create teaching aids and educational projects for their pupils.

Notice:

The course fee for our 2022 courses has been adjusted to meet the new KA1 grant budget (Erasmus+ Programme 2021-2027). Before, sending organisations received 70€/day/person for course fees. Now, the new KA1 grant provides 80€/day/person.

Payment of 100 EUR per participant (total amount).

This fee also includes our social program, which you can see below.

Notice:

In the previous Erasmus+ programme, each educational organisation also received 350 EUR per participant for organisational support. Learning Together only charged 150 EUR for administration and organisation costs (local organisation and logistics, pedagogical support activities, learning validation, certification and Europass Mobility validation). With the new programme, the organisational support fees are now a standard 100 EUR per person – however, they can vary according project type (job-sadowing, long-term,…).
