Have you ever asked yourself how to make your lessons more interactive, engaging and attractive for your students?
This week, together with 13 teachers from different schools in Romania, which decides to participate in our course Integrating ICT and new technologies into teaching and education, we tried to answer this question by exploring a vast range of technological tools which, without doubt, helped to make their classroom more enthusiast.
We had a look at the most simple, yet quite efficient tools to edit pictures and video which can be used to prepare engaging multimedia, sum up or introduce a subject or challenge the students to create their own work of art. The teachers also learned how to energize their students and get their attention thanks to a extremely effective tool which helped them to create video presentation.
But there was more: are you wondering how to easily create a website in very few steps? Our group learned to do that thanks to our class, where they had the chance to experiment the easiest drag and drop tool to build their school website.
Since during this very difficult year the teachers had to manage online classes, it seems inevitable to explore some applications to conduct a virtual lesson: the participants therefore delved into the world of virtual whiteboard to create engaging and captivating distance lessons and to create collaborative learning experiences.
The journey into the universe of technology continues with another tool designed to organise presentations, social media graphics, info graphic, flyers, posters, collages, CVs, banners and much more. Our group had plenty of time to put the theory into practice and unleash their imagination!
