Discovering Ict tools for web design, video lessons, gamification, assessment and interactive presentations
The new edition of the course “Integrating ICT and new technologies into teaching and education” took place in Palermo from 10/07/2022 to 16/07/2022. The participants came from all across Europe, with Gergana, Polya, Katerina, Neli and Toshko from 35 SEU Dobri Voinkov in Bulgary, and participants coming from three different schools: Mercedes, Estela, Sara from IES Valle del Jerte , Isidro from IES Luis de Lucena and Cristina from IES Antonio Buero Vallejo
The teachers had the chance to explore the power of new technologies to engage, motivate and empower scholars. Nowadays, students are so involved on technology that they can manage it so well, so it’s important for teachers to try to use it as a strength in their classrooms. To this purpose there are infinity ICT tools that are useful in the educational context and that can help teachers to communicate better with their students and in a more interactive way.
The first days, the teachers explored ICT tools to create interactive and virtual boards, to interact with a students in a creative way and to create virtual experiences. Collecting instant feedbacks, creating real time polls and managing online Q&A moments are few of the possibilities we experienced together, having fun sharing unique presentations created by the teachers.
During the week we discovered also the power of video lessons: the participants learned how to add questions, notes and content to animated videos, transforming boring video lessons in interactive activities.
The third day creativity was the key word: we deepened visual tools to create interactive graphics, catching content and animated scenes in an easy and fun way.
During the last part of the week the teachers explored the gamification world, with interactive games, competitions, leader boards, badges and much more. This days we learned how fun it can be playing and learning at the same time, and how collaboration and team working are important to promote students engagement.
Finally, the last day we deepened the topic of web design, exploring different tools to create a website or a blog about different kinds of topics and purposes.
In conclusion, everyone had a great time, developed its English skills and learned new tools to improve its teaching methods.
“A wonderful experience combining lessons and entertainment in a magnificent city like Palermo.
We loved it!”
Grazie mille! Un saluto da Palermo!
