DAILY TIMETABLE

• individual counselling

Leisure activities after the training session can be organised on request.

METHODOLOGY
Based on formal, informal and non-formal education, our methodology will try to stimulate active participation, pro-activity, responsibility and sharing of all participants involved. In this way, we aim to build a diverse and stimulating environment for reflecting, working and learning. It has a horizontal and practical approach and will make use of the following tools:
• face-to-face lessons
• team-building and team-working
• best practice case-studies
• multimedia and web resources
• project based working
• practical laboratory
• brainstorming and focus-group
• role-play
• self and group assessment and evaluation.

Since this course has several features in common with other courses (as you can check on this platform), sometimes participants will be all together, sometimes with some other participants, sometimes alone, depending on the specific programme. In this way we also intend to foster the cooperation and exchange between them all, as well as the knowledge of other school education systems and practices.

PREPARATION
After the confirmation and before starting, we check the previous knowledge and experience of participants, as well as their specific needs related to the topics of our training course. In addition, we will provide some documents and learning contents of our “Library of Methods & Tools” in order to start getting involved in topics and subjects that will be taught.

FOLLOW UP
All participants are expected to maintain access and communication with the rest of their colleagues as well as with the trainer and participate in useful discussions either through the virtual classroom platform and via e-mail. Trainers and company will also be available for any further questions for a period of 5 months after the end of the course, either through e-mail, virtual classroom platform, individual Skype calls, telephone or WhatsApp. By means of all these tools, we aim to get an effective follow-up, to stimulate peer networking, to keep in touch and to share opinions, experiences and practices for unlimited time.

TRAINERS
The entire training catalogue is supported by an international team of experts in project management of European projects. The coordinator and main trainer of the event is Alessandro Gariano: founder and manager of Enjoy Italy, active in education and training as well as local development and destination management; trainer of teachers and for educational organisations (110+ in-services trainings provided, 900+ trainees); youth trainer in the context of non-formal education; project designer, project manager and expert of EU Programmes.

Il corso è stato molto interessante e utile perché mi ha consentito di conoscere nuove strategie e strumenti per migliorare la mia attività lavorativa . L’utilizzo delle ICT può diventare strategico per consentire l’accesso al l’apprendimento e abbattere le barriere . La gestione dei processi inclusivi con le tecnologie digitali favorisce la valorizzazione delle differenze e un apprendimento significativo . Lo scambio poi con colleghi provenienti da altri paesi mi ha permesso di crescere e arricchire il mio bagaglio culturale. Consiglio veramente a tutti i colleghi di fare questa esperienza Erasmus attraverso ENJOY ITALY ente preciso , attento e formativo !!!

Il corso è stato molto interessante coerente con gli obiettivi formativi che mi ero prefissata di raggiungere. Mi ha permesso di migliorare le mie competenze nell' ambito delle nuove tecnologie e di conoscere le molteplici applicazioni che le TIC hanno nella didattica. È stato un corso altamente formativo e costruttivo sia dal punto di vista professionale che personale poiché mi ha permesso di arricchire il mio bagaglio culturale con il confronto e lo scambio interculturale avvenuto con tutti i colleghi degli altri stati parters. Consiglio vivamente a tutti i docenti di fare questa esperienza Erasmus con questo ente serio,preciso e veramente formativo.

This course was felt to be very relevant considering the professional activities we have developed, both in the context of the classroom and in the context of teacher training, within the framework of the eTwinning project and the educational technologies. The presentation by the trainer, who revealed that he mastered the subject and the applications worked, was easy to follow and the help to the trainees was ready and effective. The shared resources were significant, as were the strategies and methodologies presented for their use. The shared tools allowed the intended updating of knowledge. The interaction with participants from other countries, from different educational systems and with diverse pedagogical experiences, was quite productive. This training activity constituted a space for reflection and sharing that allowed the dissemination of a considerable amount of information whose relevance was one of the fundamental points. The time dedicated to each tool allowed several activities to be carried out, the presentation of the resources created by each trainee or group of trainees facilitated the perception of their potentialities and possible ways of using them with the students.

The contents provided were relevant, coherent and certainly applicable in teaching activities also because the training method adopted combined a theoretical approach with a concrete application; in my opinion maybe it could be more effective to select less digital and technological tools and give more time to the attendants for using them and sharing the outputs, anyway the teaching action was clear and also the communication style was surely effective. About the general organization I think that the timetable was a bit too condensed: in fact it wasn’t easy to maintain the concentration starting from 9:30 am till 18:00 pm with only half an hour for lunch, also because the location was good but a bit small for our group and to share it for many hours was quite stressing. Anyway thank you for availability, kindness and for the excellent job dedicated to us. Best regards, Giovanni Rosa
