New Technologies and Future Classrooms: Educational Apps, Blended Learning and Flipped Learning

Rating: 0/5

Course description

Nowadays blended learning as a new model for organizing the educational process in higher educational establishments attracts the attention of many researchers and educators all over the world. Blended learning is understood as the phenomenon in which face-to-face learning and teaching experiences are combined with online tasks and activities. What will happen if we flip the whole classroom? This is One of the most exciting advancements in the modern classroom. Having lectures at home and „homework“ at school enables students to learn at their own pace. Today there are so many options for online learning; students can easily watch videos and do the instructional part of learning at home. The key purpose of the flipped classroom is to engage students in active learning where there is a greater focus on students' application of conceptual knowledge rather than factual recall.
Flipped Classroom is practically impossible without E-learning. Students need to learn how to use technology and different online tools in order to actually attend parts of the lesson. Then they have homework at school, with the opportunity to ask the teacher everything that is not clear.
Thus, the course also focuses on various strategies which imply using E-learning in education. Trainees will improve their theoretical knowledge and expertise in the area of digital classroom. They will also have a chance to see and try many different activities using ICT. Participants will practice how to use different tools available online - Kahoot, Socrative, Prezi, Khan Academy, etc. Trainees will also learn how to engage different groups of students in the digital classroom. They will learn how to adapt existing tasks and assignments in a way that they suit the needs of mixed ability classes.
