Technology is transforming the classroom, yet many experienced teachers find it challenging to adapt. Our courses are

Digital Storytelling Techniques for Effective Teaching and Learning

This course takes the traditional technique of storytelling to a whole new level using up-to-date digital tools, applications, and software. Participants will be presented with a variety of digital tools they can
exploit and integrate into a digital story.

Participants will spend the course analysing different methods, templates, practice with infographics, add sound using Screencastomatic, and Weebly, while working on the practical aspects of digital storytelling, make their digital story and present it to their peers at the end of the course.

Throughout the course participants will develop knowledge of a wide range of digital storytelling tools; present digital storytelling; and apply digital storytelling methods to education.

Google for Education: Tools and Applications

Over the last 20 years technology has become a major influence in our lives. As technology develops it is only natural that teachers and education should too! By harnessing the mighty power of integrated communication technology (ICT), teachers can make their lessons more student-centred, dynamic, interactive, and students more independent in their learning. The course supports participants by guiding them in how they can incorporate a variety of Google tools and applications into their lessons. A project-based learning approach is applied to the sessions, and learners will use Google Docs, Forms, and Slides to collaborate while working on educational ICT based projects using Google Earth, Google My Maps, and Google Arts and Culture.
