The Ministry of Education
Digital Tools for Creative Classroom Projects is yet another iEARN-Centre
During the 2-day hands on training program, the workshop participants will learn to engage students in interactive, student-centered, cooperative learning by effectively integrating digital project in the curriculum they teach. In this workshop, participants will experience how easy it is to integrate digital media like cameras, scanners, sound-recording devices, video camcorders and creative software into the classroom curriculum. The workshop activities will enable the teachers to engage their students in using the digital tools to produce digital media for learning content. The various sessions of the course will present easy to use resources including software, shareware as well as print materials including some UNICEF developed resources. Each workshop participant will get a resource binder and a CD Rom packed with resources that will not only help the teachers during the workshop but would also be a great resource for them to use later on as they implement the projects in their classroom and with colleagues.
