Future Classroom: Apps for Education
The challenges of today´s school are demanding for nowadays teachers.
School competes in several levels with the internet, digital apps and other sharing systems of communication and knowledge. Students of today are part of a digital generation very different from their teachers’, and because of that they learn everything in a distinct way.
This course’s aim is to update teachers in order to overcome this challenge and place students in the center of learning by doing what they know best: using digital apps.
Objectives: During this course we’ll use teachers and students daily life situations while using educational apps to transfer knowledge. Our methodology is learning by discovery to promote motivation and creativity for educational subjects. These apps can be used in every school activitiy: school trips, museums, students’ everyday life and so on.
By leveraging these digital tools, teachers can better motivate students in their subjects!
Course Duration and Costs
All costs can be supported with a KA grant under the Erasmus+ programme.
For a 6-day course, Learning Together charges 580 euros per participant (A+B).
For our 6-day course, the course fee is 480 EUR per participant, for tuition and materials (6-day course x 80,00 EUR per day). This can be covered with the course fee that you receive with your KA1 grant: 80 EUR / day / person.
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.
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,…).
