What was this webinar about?

This webinar offers you a comparative overview of formal, non-formal and informal learning theories in terms of purpose, timing, content delivery systems, control and evaluation. The presentation provides practical examples of non-formal learning methods that can be used in a classroom, in a museum hall, within an Erasmus+ project, or at a distance.

Today, many digital applications are part of the daily vocabulary of educators and students. Collaborative and creative digital platforms can support the lifelong learning process in both formal and non-formal educational contexts, enabling educators to lead learners on digital paths of discovery.
