Digital Technologies For The
Creative Classroom

Course summary

Porto, Portugal

6-day Course

Erasmus+ KA1

Today’s students may find traditional hobbies, like reading, to be incredibly uninteresting as a result of the digital revolution, but they are compelled by audiovisual and creative material (e.g.,
videos, photos, and audio resources).

However, educators may feel unable to interact with pupils utilizing digital tools and lingo. For that reason, this course has been designed for teachers and educators who want to learn about online tools and settings like Padlet, Slido, Plot Generator, or Canva, to mention a few, that encourage teamwork and creativity.

With plenty of time for reflection and debate on their strengths and limitations as well as potential application in their teaching contexts, participants will acquire practical experience utilizing
and generating material in each application during this course.

By incorporating students in fun group projects or imaginative online activities, teachers will be better able to make their classes more interesting.

Participants will be able to identify the benefits and drawbacks of each ICT tool by the conclusion of the course and be able to use them effectively in the classroom.

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.
