Maths Mobile Learning with the Milage+ Learn platform
In this course, participants will explore the free MILAGE Learning+ platform (Android and iOS), developed to help maths’ teachers as well as other subjects, enabling students to access educational content in and outside the classroom.
This functional app works as a support tool for students, providing them with the opportunity to autonomously solve given exercises compiled in worksheets. Simultaneously, it supports teachers when managing classroom time, by not having to provide solutions to exercises, which are already integrated into the app.
The MILAGE Learning+ app interface incorporates gamification features, segmenting different levels of exercise difficulty to support students with greater difficulties and also motivate more advanced students in learning maths. To integrate everyone, the app provides detailed exercise solving videos for students with more difficulties. There is also a concise essential steps video to guide students through exercise solving. In addition, this platform also includes a self & peer assessment to stimulate the student to work independently.
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,…).
