Being a modern teacher today presents an unparalleled challenge as it means developing certain skills that will enable us to prepare our students for their future professional careers. We are living in a world where only change is constant and we, as teachers, need to dedicate our lives to lifelong learning and professional growth in order to keep up with the modern schooling system and keep our students motivated and interested. “Using Technology in the Classroom” is a course made for all the teachers wishing to upgrade classical educational content using technology and make teaching compelling for the new generation of students who are surrounded by technology from an early age.
Teachers who work with children with special needs are facing many obstacles in their everyday classes. This is why we have developed “Special Needs in Education” course which presents techniques and methods intertwined with technology that facilitate SEN students to achieve educational outcomes and develop socialization skills.
Ana Paradzik is our specialist in computing and special needs education. Her lectures present a mixture of knowledge, experience, and a great variety of examples taken from over a decade of practice, observation and developing skills. She is going to share her expertise concerning latest apps and technologies that can be used in your classroom. Ana is going to demonstrate instances and reveal valuable practice in teaching gained after years of working with children in primary and secondary school.
We may not be required to take a Hippocratic oath, as doctors, but we still have duty towards our profession and our students to grow, develop professionally, and share our knowledge with our peers. Erasmus+ courses have finally given us the opportunity to do this on an international level.
