COURSE INFORMATION:
As our society becomes more complex, schools must adapt their methods to prepare students for new challenges in the 21st century. This course will help you prepare for a dynamic, challenging and motivating teaching approach which get your students would be critical and conscious digital citizens.

Innovative learning refers to a broad range of teaching strategies which engage students as active participants in their learning process during class time with their instructor. Typically, these strategies involve some amount of students working together during class, but may also involve individual work and/or reflection. Active methodologies place the students at the center of this process and make them the protagonists of discovery, rather than just passive information receivers. There are different teaching strategies to create an active learning environment and to engage the students to it.

Cooperative Learning, Project Based Learning, Flipped Classroom and Blended learning are excellent examples of these active methodologies. These inclusive approaches provides teachers more opportunities to personalize the learning process of their students and can thereby increase their autonomy, motivation and self-direction.

Currently, Blended learning, the meaningful combination of learning at a distance and in school, through a careful choice of different tools and strategies, is becoming increasingly common in schools. Blended learning can therefore be an important step towards a competence-based education where the learner stands at the centre of an active learning process.

Moreover, the course provides innovative and engaging tools to integrate active methodology based on digital skills taking into account the content of the lessons and the curriculum. You will be able to use new technologies in the classroom, with special focus on the use of tablets as iPads or similar ones and discovering new apps but the achieve of all new knowledge as well. Teaching your students to use technology at the service of their own learning and to make a responsible and critical use of ICT’s, you will able to contribute they would be real digital citizens of 21st century.
