It is the need of the hour to provide students and teachers a different and more profound learning experience by leveraging technology, thus creating a new enhanced interactive knowledge paradigm. To address the Digital training needs of teachers, TRC is organizing a 6-hour workshop in collaboration with Knowledge Jump. Knowledge Jump is a Pakistan based organization focusing on spreading STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education in Pakistan.
ICT can have large benefits, but it can also add to a teacher’s workload, especially when syllabus requirements are so overwhelming. This workshop aims to demonstrate that the benefit of using ICT can far outweigh the cost. How? By tailoring the use of ICT to the needs you identify in your own classrooms.
Through this interactive workshop, participants will:
• understand the value of educational technology in teaching and learning
• be able to engage and motivate students using digital tools
• be able to choose the right technology to achieve learning outcomes of the course you teach
• understand how to develop appropriate learner-centered activities using educational technology
This is an instructor-led, hands-on training. Participants will get to build micro-projects based on different technologies that will be explained and demonstrated by the instructor. The primary instructor will conduct live training from Cambridge, UK and will be assisted by our team for hands-on activities during the sessions
