Integrating Educational Technology with 21st Century Learning

3-14 July 2017 (including arrival and departure dates)

Estonia has a well-deserved reputation as an advanced e-society. In 2007 it was the first country in the world to introduce nation-wide Internet voting in its national parliamentary election. Free and fast Wi-Fi internet connections are available in many public places across the country. In August 2014 a new general competence (digital competence) was added to the national curriculum. Education policy in Estonia now explicitly expects schools to play a major role in developing students’ digital competence. 

The course is designed for applicants with at least some experience working as educators in schools, universities or other institutions:

 

  • teacher training students with practical classroom teaching experience; 
  • in-service teachers and pre-service teachers with practical classroom experience;
  • lecturers (of teacher training);
  • professional trainers and pedagogues: museum and science centre educators, etc.

The aim of this course is to provide educators with innovative ways of implementing technology-enhanced activities in their own teaching environments. Participants of the course will have the opportunity to discuss their own unique educational contexts and make plans of how to best apply educational technology to meet their particular teaching and learning goals.
