The webinar is suitable for teachers (STEM teachers in particular), school principals and vice-principals, representatives of EU institutions, national and regional educational authorities and Non-Governmental Organisations in the field of education.
Good practice toolkit
In 2022, four workshops brought together, both in Belgium and Bulgaria, dozens of mathematics and science teachers to discuss the integration of digital tools in education. All of them had varying levels of use of digital technologies in classes, and different subjects were discussed. We summarized the ideas that those teachers developed together and lessons learned in a Good Practice toolkit, that you can download completely for free:
This guide aims to help you navigate the wide range of possibilities offered by digital tools in the school environment today. Participants were aware that integrating digital content is not an innate ability and that everyone’s experience is different. But one thing is certain, teaching practices can be enriched thanks to technologies. This is not about replacing the teacher, but about giving them the tools to promote and support learning through new approaches. Indeed, digital skills are more necessary today than ever before to be a critical, active and responsible citizen.
We hope that the results of our exchanges will will encourage you to make use of new digital tools in your practice and you will want to lend assistance to your colleagues who would also like to get involved.
Our approach is aimed at all teachers, regardless of their teaching habits, to help them overcome any possible fears and to demystify everything directly or indirectly related to technologies and digital tools.
You can download the Bulgarian version of the Good Practice Toolkit from here.
French version is coming soon.
