Experiential Workshop for Teachers
The Evangeliki Model High School of Smyrna, within the framework of innovatory educational activities of European projects, realizes in collaboration with Ellinogermaniki Agogi School the experiential workshop:
“The use of lifelong learning online tools in the school class for the realization of interdisciplinary activities in Sciences”
Wednesday 23 November 2016, 17:00 – 18:30
Location: Evangeliki Model High School of Smyrna
The experiential workshop aims at presenting to the participants the concept of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) and at showing ways in which MOOCs can be used in the school class in order to reinforce the students’ contact with subjects related to their interests and their daily life along with traditional teaching.
In the first part of the workshop, MOOCs examples will be displayed. These examples mainly illustrate the support of interdisciplinary teaching of Sciences through the connection of various thematic units in the same lesson. The examples and educational resources that will be presented are designed to promote inquiry-based learning and to help students understand the connection between different natural phenomena and between different natural laws. In the second part, participants will have the chance to get to know and be trained on the digital platform used for the examples creation that will be presented in the first part. More specifically, participants will have the chance to work on and learn the basic functions of edX platform (https://www.edx.org/) that has been designed by the University of Harvard and the Technological Institute of Massachusetts (ΜΙΤ).
Participation forms: To apply for your participation, please fill in the form found in the link below: https://goo.gl/HXsWN8
