Succesfull learning course for teachers co created!
Together with Hieke Hoekstra and Ate de Boer we developed a course at Effectief Onderwijs and noordelijkonderwijsgilde.nl for teachers in special-needs education about digital teaching materials and tools. Our 16 participants explored many digitals tools and created their own research plan:
- developed a research question based on their pupils needs and abilities
- designed a pilot test to run
- run a pilot test
- created a video and presentation
- wrote a report about their insights with recommendations for their organisation plus peers
A final magazine with reviews on different digital tools and providers has been created as a library to continue with as a team, one of biggest finding is that the way to get a tool is a first obstacle, to implement a tool second, but once you are interacting with the pupils, they very often surprise their teachers with their talents and abilities to explore these objects. Like my pupils surprised me happily during this course ; )
