Facing ICT in classroom, feeling that students feel more comfortable with technology than we are, is quite challenging for teachers. Devices such as tablets, laptops or smartphones, with multiple operating systems and thousand of apps seems to be a muddy environment to run into without help.

In this course, teachers will not only learnt useful tools to work with but the workflow itself, understanding the processes that occurs in the background.

It is also an opportunity to experience within a student´s driven learning environment, spotting possible drawbacks when designing learning content.

The scope of this course will cover all the stages in a project based learning, from research to assessment, in order to facilitate teacher´s job.
