By​ ​the​ ​end​ ​of​ ​the​ ​course ​participants​ ​will​ ​have​ ​gathered​ ​a​ ​great​ ​deal​ ​of​ ​personal experience​ ​in​ ​using​ ​different​ ​apps​ ​and​ ​devices​ ​and​ will have​ ​greater​ ​confidence​ ​and​ ​courage​ ​to use​ ​them​ ​in​ ​their​ ​work.

The course was well organised covering lots of useful information, free online apps and general information about key competences, lesson organisation, class management as well as Florence, the place where the course took place. It also included two guided city tours with amazing guides who presented some "spicy" facts about Florence as well as a full-day trip in Tuscany region for development of cultural awareness, tasting world recognized ice-cream, introducing to Medieval towns and places of interest. A lovely week in Florence!
