The course is appropriate for teachers at any level, of any subject head teachers, school inspectors, school counsellors, decision makers in the field of education, trainers. The course is aimed for adult education, therefore it focuses on the development of the participants digital competencies and skills (e.g. teaching/training related skills, soft skills etc.). The participants must have the basic knowledge of Microsoft Office (or similar) and appropriate skills of using the computer.
Each course is unique, as it is adapted to the novelties in education, to the background & level of education the participants teach/train at (in case the participants come from the education area) and/or to the background of the participants (in case the participants come from the labour market or business area). It is also possible that more topics will be combined in each session, in order to create a course adapted to the participants' needs and to the objectives of the projects the participants receive the grant from. In this respect, the title above is a course topic ( the final course title will include the key words mentioned in this title, but it can be more complex).
The course is organized in Assen, the Netherlands, for 7 days, starting on Sunday afternoon and ending on next Saturday, at the lunch time. At request, people having a grant for 5 days can join only the first 5 days of the course, from Sunday afternoon to the next Thursday, at the lunch time.
For logistic and organisational reasons, all the participants will be accommodated in the same hotel chosen by the course organiser, the rooms will be booked by the course organiser and the participants will pay the equivalent amount by using the grant for individual costs received from their National Agencies. The hotel offers the possibility to choose single, double or triple rooms. However, a double or triple rooms can be chosen only if other participants are willing to share double or triple rooms.
All the participants in the training course will have breakfast and lunches together, in the same hotel where they are accommodated and where also the conference rooms are located.
The course fee is the standard amount of 70 Eur per person per day. For organisational costs directly linked with the implementation of mobility activities, as well as monitoring and support during mobility each participant has to pay a fee of 65 Euro for the whole course, amount that will be paid by using the grant received from the NAs for organisational costs.

Feedback participants:
“The course helped me understand that the use of tools of ICT are the most motivating ways or methods to make learning more motivating and attractive because by using these tools learners have the possibility to gain knowledge in a fun way.” (Rosa María Bandrés, Spain)
“Channelling teaching through ICT technology is an excellent method of motivating the students i.e. make learning fun through ICT learning games.” (Ilias Boultzis, Greece)
“I learned that if teachers would use ICT to support their lesson the students could feel more comfortable and be more motivated because for them ICT is like a playground with a lot of possibilities. The interaction between students and teachers can also be increased and the teacher assume another role than before, he's not "the god of the class" but he can help and support the students.” (Ludivine Lobertréau, France)
“Through this course I have grown in the use of ICT for learning materials and I became aware that the pupils can independently search for information.” (Laura Verheyden, Belgium)
“I learned that the outdoor activities are very important as students are more communicative in nature, get rid of addictions, team spirit develops and get to know each other better.” (Adina-Maria Isac, Romania)
