Erasmus+ KA1: ICT skills for Educators

The course will allow educators to interact with others to improve their level of IT skills at their own pace

DESCRIPTION OF TRAINING CONTENT

Computing and IT is required by all businesses and jobs in today’s world. Information and Communication technology (ICT) has the potential to transform teaching and learning processes. According to a recent study in OECD countries, students are more sophisticated in their use of technology than teachers; an inherent discrepancy between student knowledge and usage of ICTs with the abilities of teacher to use ICTs. This suggest that teacher inexperience and skill deficiencies may often be a fundamental factor which prevents the effectiveness of ICT use in education. The same study reveals that the most effective uses of ICT are those in which the teacher, aided by ICTs, may challenge understanding and thinking of pupils, and this can be done through whole-class discussions and/or individual/small group workshops using ICTs. Nowadays, it is widely accepted that the use of ICTs should not aim at completely transforming teacher practices in and of itself but rather enabling and supporting the move from traditional ‘teacher-centric’ teaching styles to more ‘learner-centric’ methods. In other words, making each one of the students active and fully engaged. The ‘ICT skills for Educators’ course is designed to enable participants to improve their teaching practices with the use of specific ICT tools, such as smart boards, web conferencing and webinars, among others, thus, creating a ‘learner-centric’ ; This is an ideal course for all teachers, educators & trainers interested in continuing professional development (CPD).

Main Aims

  •       To guide participants in their achievement of the course learning outcomes
  •       To provide opportunities for participants to reflect on their own practice
  •        Prepare participants for implementing course content in their own classrooms
  •       Enhance participants’ skills to develop their learners’ digital skills and literacy
  •       To provide a technological toolkit for educators and improve the level of key competences and ICT skills
  •       To access a variety of on-line resources to promote good practice in education
  •       Share best practices, ideas and materials between colleagues within the EU

Why ICTE?

The course will allow educators to interact with others to improve their level of IT skills at their own pace enabling their updated knowledge to be used for school improvement. ICTE will improve the educator’s ability to use innovative and student-centred learning approaches and develop appropriate assessment to move their learners forward in their use of ICT. ICTE will enhance the participant’s ability to reduce low achievement of their pupils and students in ICT at the same time developing their pupils’ critical thinking when using ICT. The participants will be able to develop lessons for diverse learners – learners with special needs to high achievers by improving their own confidence to offer IT support. Participants will become a confident user of ICT across a range of medias and applications.
