Better Teacher - Erasmus + courses
Computing is a creative human activity that engenders innovation and promotes exploration among students. It can change the way children think, what they learn, and how they interact with peers and adults.
Unfortunately, most children use computers only occasionally at school — and usually only when their teachers want to add variety or rewards to the curriculum. Unfortunate children use mostly drill-and-practice software, their teachers stating that their goal for using computers is to increase basic skills rather than develop problem-solving or creative skills (Becker 1990, Hickey 1993).
Since videogames from game consoles like PSP or PlayStation play a pivotal role in many students’ lives, why not taking advantage of them to boost their learning?
In this 25hrs on-site course, we will learn how to enhance our activities or lessons, by gamifying them. This methodology develops students' focus and collaborative skills.
This is a "hands-on" course. You will share ideas, concepts, and resources with other teachers and you will be creating lesson plans from scratch.
We will learn how to use gamified apps and how to integrate others in such ways that learning/teaching will become a pleasure.
