This guided course is designed to walk you through the steps of flipping a single class; the process is scalable for flipping portions of each unit or an entire course. One of the major factors in course redesign is the time it takes to do it well. Under this scope, the participants will be able to create their own lesson plans incorporating standalone tools and web applications in their everyday activities, encouraging, at the same time, their students to use digital repositories and content.

The objective of this course is to familiarize European teachers with ways to use digital storytelling techniques in classroom, get familiar with the latest WEB 2.0 and WEB 3.0 Tools and expand their knowledge in screen capturing and video producing. This means that the participants of this course will have the opportunity to gain great knowledge on how to involve video capturing, tools, strategies and practical tips of digital storytelling into their teaching. The training course will provide European teachers with an introduction to Digital storytelling approach, as well as with hands-on experiences with practical examples and case studies (pre existing Lesson plans) and tools that are commonly used to help students creating digital stories in the Classroom. 

The objective of this course is to familiarize European science teachers with ways to use Web 2.0 applications, providing a variety of tools to help them produce creative activities and provide to students a context in which they will create, collaborate, and communicate. Under this scope, the participants will be able to create their own lesson plans incorporating web 2.0 science tools and web applications in their everyday activities, encouraging, at the same time, their students to do science. The implementation of these programs in the educational process requires a radical revision of the content and methods of teaching, using a fresh approach to the teaching of science, taking into account the attraction of pupils and students to computers from the means of graphics and animation, increasing significantly their understanding of the basic concepts of science.

In our course a particular focus will be on training teachers to sensitize them to the importance of information and media literacy in the education process, enable them to integrate information literacy into their teaching and provide them with appropriate pedagogical methods and curricula. The course will focus in the additional value given in certain web tools using certain literacy skills.

In this course you will learn how to produce educational video material with video editing software and create a YouTube account and set up a YouTube channel. You will learn to customize it and all the fine tunning you need to do in the settings area in order to promote your content. As video is becoming increasingly more productive as a supplemental medium for education to traditional text books and class room lectures, you will learn to create and upload them in your YouTube channel. You will learn to optimize your content and to add metadata using tags to help your page be found when people are searching for content on a particular subject. As the use of YouTube for education continues to grow, it’s essential for educators to establish a presence on the web. While learning networks with short clips are on the rise, the opportunity to create and share didactic videos is still a vital part of developing your educational voice.

The purpose of the course is helping teachers learn how to design and implement science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) lessons using robotics. The need to prepare students with twenty-first-century skills through STEM-related teaching is strong as properly taught classes in robotics are having a significant impact on the development of mathematical literacy and scientific-technical information and social competences. The primary of objective of this course about educational robotics is to provide a set of experience to facilitate the student's development of knowledge, skills and attitudes for the design, analysis, application and operation of robots. 

The objective of this course is to familiarize European teachers and training professionals with ways to develop their e-learning activities with Moodle. This means that the participants of this course will have the opportunity to gain great knowledge on how to use Moodle features, tools, strategies and practical tips on managing their own e-learning platform. The training course will provide European teachers with an introduction to Virtual Learning Environment, as well as with hands-on experiences with practical examples and case studies (preexisting Lesson plans) and tools that are commonly used to help educators in creating their own digital courses. Under this scope, the participants will be able to create their own virtual classes' standalone tools and web applications in their everyday activities, encouraging, at the same time, their students to become active in the course following their own time schedule.
