Digital Extra is a place for educators to explore a range of eLearning methods, innovations and technologies to better prepare them for a rapidly changing workplace. The courses are open for teachers of all categories, teacher trainers, ICT staff and resource centre staff and museum educationalists. Digital Extra aims to connect you with a new generation of learners.
Basic eLearning and media skills will be developed and more advanced competencies in ICT enhanced learning will be addressed. A full on-line preparation module is included.
The objective is to learn how to create state of the art eLearning content using the context of culture and heritage. The material created during the course will be shared collectively with your colleagues for immediate use within and outside the classroom.
The pedagogical method for the course is based upon the ideas developed within the curriculum development project Digital Extra and experiences from practical training courses with teachers. This method has become a flexible way of addressing issues about eLearning, blended learning and digital literacy.
Teachers will learn to create learning materials using readily available (mostly free) software and applications.
The topics, which are set in the context of a visit to a museum or heritage site, will be introduced by lectures, study trips and hands-on experience
