I attended the course 'Social Media and Web Solutions'at Europass Teacher Academy. The courses included digital tools for classroom use, such as Edpuzzle, Google docs, Edmodo. Ι would like to mention in particular our teacher Bulent Donmez who is skilled and experienced. His willingness to offer knowledge was remarkable.

I attended the course 'Social Media and Web Solutions'at Europass Teacher Academy. The courses were very informative. Our teacher Bulent Donmez explained everything in details, so I have been taught quit a lot. Mr Bulent Donmez is very experienced, skilled and willing to teach us as much as possible. He is very clever and highly qualified. I feel happy that I attended his course.

I was very interested in participating in a course with this topic from the very beginning as I consider that social media can be really facilitating in the learning process especially for secondary education students and special needs students. I feel that I got useful knowledge which I am looking forward to using in my classroom. Our trainer was very supportive, specifically he tried to help me the best he could when we realized that I had not been previously informed by the organizers to bring a laptop to the seminar. So, in terms of organization, I was not really satisfied as I did not receive all emails. Also, it would have been more convenient if the seminar included fewer units because the time available for presentation of the web solutions, questions of the participants and finally practice was limited and as a result we were not able to go into all of them equally thoroughly. As for Dublin, the city was absolutely rewarding for sightseeing, walking around and visiting famous Irish pubs. Excellent day trip to the Giants Causeway with a wonderful tour guide.

I have found the course quite challenging, many useful platforms and apps were presented and taught. The teacher (Robert) was a calm and patient professional who lead us through the lessons with ease. I highly recommend the course to those who want to keep up with modern teaching. Thank you Robert, and thank you, my group:). And, the trip was amazing 👍

It wasn´t always easy to orient myself in the huge variety of Homepages and Apps to make my lessons more interesting for my students and myself as well :) I´m only 30 years old and still sometimes felt at such a loss. But our teacher Bülent was always very patient and helpful and managed to give uns a great overview over the huge amount of possibilities. He gave us enough time to try out everything for ourselves, as well! I think we will stay in touch and from now on I know exactly whom to ask for new Social Media Trends for my classroom! ;) Thank you so much, Bülent, and hope to see you soon! Annett

I got a lot of ideas how to integrate social media and especially digital tools in my lessons. Most I liked the quizzes and the tools to create and change videos (TedEd, EdPuzzle, screencast-o-matic). I missed the structure (although we get an agenda which we didn´t follow) and I also missed introductions and (digital) handouts to the contents/procedure/summary. The teacher tried to give his best but he was very verdant. I was surprised that he didn´t ask for our feedback at the end to improve himself. It would be better if the course would take place in the morning and not in the afternoon until the evening. I enjoyed the exchange with the other teachers from different countries about their educational systems and cultures. The excursion on the last day to the Cliffs of Moher was amazing and also the guided tour in Dublin!

I just came back from this course in Dublin. I found it very useful, I learnt to use well a few tools like edmodo, edted, wordpress, screencast-o-matic that will all be very useful to me in my work. I will also try teach my colleagues to use them, since I know some of them would be really useful to them, too. The thing i was not happy about was that the lessons were held at 13.30-18.30 and we were only told about the schedule a week earlier. However, we enjoyed the morning walking around Dublin and there was an excursion on Saturday. So, I was very satisfied with the course on the whole.

In our 2-week ICT training course in Ireland, (How to use Tablets, Educational Apps and Social Media in your Classroom; To use technology in the classroom, integrate mobile devices into our lessons, use platforms like Facebook, Edmodo, Onenote, use of ICTs, web platforms and applications that will make our lessons more fun and interactive, learning and teaching through game-based platforms, training of social media, To create visual resources to facilitate learning, Social Classroom Management, Social photo sharing, Development of an E-Safe classroom, How to teach students to be digital readers, as well as safe and responsible social users we had the opportunity to learn and practice. Using these applications, we learned that we can interact with our students outside the school, and that we can do interactive training. We also liked the work on the use of social media and the game-based education, it is nice to have happy return from the students. This training course was very productive for us. Bülent Dönmez and Robert Schwamborn, our course trainers, took care of each of us for each study in the training process and answered all our questions. they didn't give us the chance to fail or not to learn. We can still get help if we have any questions. Many thanks to our instructors Bülent Dönmez and Robert Schwamborn. The Europass Teacher Academy is a highly organized, disciplined, planned and reliable course, its communication is beautiful, we have not had any communication problems with them or our trainers. Our trainers were very successful and the experts of their jobs, our training program was very well planned, our weekend program was great. We also met colleagues from different countries, exchanged information about each other's education systems and cultures, and we agreed to work together in different projects in the future. We had the chance to see the historical, cultural and natural beauties of Dublin. In the end, this training course was very useful for us and it helped us improve ourselves. I hope to have a chance to rejoin for other Project, I would definitely recommend to those who want to attend any courses abroad. We would like to thank our lecturers Bülent Dönmez and Robert Schwamborn and Europass Teacher Academy for myself, my participating teacher friends and all Karatay Science High School teachers and students.

The course was not so good organised. Unfortunately the lessons started at 1:30 pm until 7 pm. The teacher tried his best, was inexperienced. The number of 12 students was very good. I will use some of the programs at school.
