How do I use the Internet to teach?
During this course the participants learnt how to use a vast range of technological tools and to put them into use by integrating it into their teaching methods.
One of the first things we learned were ways of collecting feedback from students. As teachers, not only are you supposed to provide feedback, but it is helpful to receive it. This way, it’s easier to work with students and teach them in a way that is unique for them. The participants got to explore a few different apps that help with that.
Another important thing is to make teaching interactive - it keeps students engaged and active. The group discovered tools to personalize pictures and videos, which can be used to create all sorts of content: introducing new concepts or summing up old ones, giving students an interactive platform to create their own work, preparing multimedia content - just to name a few.
In addition, participants also learnt how to create a website following a few easy steps. Thanks to this course this group was able to experiment with an easy drag and drop tool that could help them create a website for their schools or for their teaching purposes.
Lastly, the group explored the possibilities of social media, in order to add to the lessons engaging activities directly linked to the real life of their students.
This course allowed participants to broaden their perspectives on what it means to teach. We are happy to be sending them home with heads full of ideas and motivation to implement new ways of teaching!
