Future Classroom: Apps for Education

Course summary

Porto, Portugal

6 days

Erasmus+ KA1

580€

The challenges of today´s school are increasingly demanding for nowadays teachers.

Schools compete on 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 aims 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 activity: school trips, museums, students’ everyday life and so on.

By leveraging these digital tools, teachers can better motivate students in their subjects!
