I thoroughly enjoyed my study week at Europass Academy in Florence. Our teacher / instructor Lorenzo Gaspari has done an outstanding job to cater for the individual needs of the eight participants from four different countries who have come from various teaching environments. After sussing out the group Lorenzo introduced us to a variety of very interesting and useful applications that are easily accessible and not too difficult to put to use. Although technicillay challenged at times, I have come away from this week very encouraged to try out new ways in my teaching approach back home. Lorenzo is a very enthusiastic teacher who loves what he does, always positive and encouraging. Besides his outstanding interpersonal skills - he is highly professional in his teaching approach. He always came well prepared to class and followed a clear concept through to the end. This was done to my full satisfaction. Summing it up, I can highly recommend this course and Lorenzo as an instructor.

This course was a great surprise!  Although I had some knowledge of IT, Lorenzo was coming every day with, at least, two different tools we could use at our practices for different approaches. So I get to learn a lot and I'm already applying it at the school :-D The organization was perfect allowing us to study and to have time to discover Florece. And, of course, to be at this beautiful city was the "cherry on the top of cake". There are no words to describe it or to tell the History at every corner. Grazie mille!

I really enjoyed the week at Europass. The class size (9 ppl) was perfect, the exchange with teachers from other countries was interesting and the course was very informative. Even though I knew a few of the apps beforehand, I‘ve learned much more about different features I didn’t use before. Moreover, the week was well-organized by Europass. I can definitely recommend this course.

The course focused on ICT methods (mainly apps) used in education. The teacher was well-prepared, kind, and professional. The learning process was extremely practical, we actually created a lot of materials, tried our the sites and the apps with the mentoring of our trainer. I have learnt several tricks to boost up my English lessons and to save time in preparing my materials. It was definitely a flourishing experience. :)

The course was well organised. We had plenty of time to use the different apps and see how we could adapt them to our teaching context. The trainer was very helpful and managed to cater to the needs of all the participants.
