ICT in schools survey – many children not getting what they need; teachers need more training and support.

ICT in schools survey – many children not getting what they need; teachers need more training and support. | test | Scoop.it

Students and teachers in Europe are keen to "go digital", computer numbers have doubled since 2006 and most schools are now "connected", but use of ICTs (Information and Communication Technologies) and digital skill levels are very uneven. These skills and support for teachers to deliver them need a strong boost, according to a survey on the use of digital technologies in schools in Europe published by the Commission.

Overall findings seem to be that teachers need more training and support. I could not agree more.

This is our greatest challenge! How do we overcome this obstacle? We are hoping to address some of these issues in our JT2020 planning.

Much like the Apple Distinguished Educator, you have to apply to get into the Google Teacher Academy. Have a read and share with anyone you think might be interested in applying.

A wonderful visual depiction of how educators can tap into their networks to expand and continually improve their teaching practice from a trove of rich resources. Illustrated by Langwitches, the image refers to Alec Couros’s original post exploring question, “What does the network mean to you?”

EU funded ICT course for teachers in Urbino

EU funded ICT course for teachers in Urbino | test | Scoop.it

This year I taught again on the Comenius / Grundtvig funded course called TACCLE. It is a week long course for teachers who want to learn more about technology. Teachers can now apply for a grant to participate in the course with their National Agency. Deadline for grant applications is September 17th.
Registrations are now open for the 6th edition of the TACCLE course in April 2014.
You might be interested to learn that we are organising a new edition of our TACCLE course in April 2014 in Italy.
With this fifth in-service training, which will run from 6 until 13 April 2013 in Urbino, Italy our aim is to help teachers to develop state of the art content for e-learning in general and for learning environments in particular. We try to achieve this by training teachers to create e-learning materials and raising their awareness of e-learning in general. TACCLE will help to establish a culture of innovation in the schools in which they work. The training is geared to the needs of the classroom teachers but teacher trainers, ICT support staff and resource centre staff may find it useful too!
This course is not aimed at advanced users of ICT. [...]
