iTEC (Innovative Technologies for Engaging Classrooms) is a major EU-funded project in which European Schoolnet is working with education ministries, technology providers and research organisations to bring about transformation in learning and teaching through learning technology. Its website is full of innovative resources, scenarios, digital tools, research and videos, such as this example of an Italian classroom using iTEC resources:
iTEC host a series of webinars to discuss issues related to future classroom design, and on the 27th of February they are hosting a Flipped Classroom webinar. See details below:
The flipped classroom is a pedagogical model in which the lesson and homework elements of a classroom activity are reversed; pupils access their lessons remotely while at home, and then carry out their ‘homework’ in class with their teacher and classmates. The flipped classroom has already made significant inroads in the United States, but how will this model affect teaching practice in Europe?
In this webinar we’ll discuss the core principles of a flipped classroom and the different ways in which it might be achieved, from a European perspective. The webinar is led by researcher Tarmo Toikkanen from Aalto University, Finland. Participants are welcome to tell about their own experiences, share tips and debate.
We invite all iTEC partners, teachers and other colleagues to take part in this webinar!
The iTEC webinars are free of charge and anyone can sign-up using the registration form. The participation link will be sent to the registered users. If you would like to join, please register here: http://goo.gl/Bwamu
