Marketing Text Europe's educational systems are witnessing a dynamic infusion of Information Technology into the training classrooms. Different and wide ranging thinking skills need to be cultivated and emphasis should be placed on the social interactions that are enabled by the new technologies. The young generations, under the pressure of peer groups, are taking up eagerly and with confidence the most advanced technologies as soon as technology vendors make them available. In contrast, curricula & learning objectives still focus on very basic (in fact, primitive) computer skills and teachers themselves are slow adopters of the new ICTs. The educational system has to offer sufficient recourses for preparing and supporting the creative and knowledge society of tomorrow.
Description The expected INSPIRE-ICT project impact focuses on offering the European teachers meaningful, real, rich and relevant learning experiences that will result in preparing students for a technology-rich world and culturally diverse modern societies. INSPIRE-ICT proposal is based on FUNecole®, a proven educational curriculum that dynamically integrates ICT skill building and character & social skills development in education.
Target group Technology experts, master trainers and educators (Primary school teachers).
Area of application INSPIRE-ICT aims to enhance the co-operation between training institutes and schools throughout Europe that will result in the development of dynamic learning environments and communities.
