Digital Classroom Managmement

   A notable role of teachers is helping students to acquire soft skills and adaptive skills, as a means of preventing behavioral problems, and they can have a significant impact on the way a student is being shaped. The effective 21st century teachers not only transfer their knowledge and skills, but prepare students for life beyond the classroom, as digital citizens. Soft skills have an important contribution to a positive self-presentation, being typically used to get and keep a job, and to make use of opportunities in life.

 

   The main aim of this course is to enable its participants to enhance their soft competencies and to work on their emotional intelligence, while, at the same time, mastering concrete tools and activities to be used with the pupils, in order to support them in developing their emotional intelligence skills. This environment will foster excellence and innovation in education, by equipping teachers and education staff with the basic knowledge and skills about classroom management strategies.

Methodology

 

   Our courses, developed in the framework established by the Erasmus+ Programme, are crafted to include both formal and non-formal education methodologies. Starting with a theoretical approach to the theme of the course, we proceed with non-formal learning strategies in order to guarantee and stimulate an active contribution from the participants involved. In practice, we use: Presentations; Analysis of study cases; Discussions in the classroom; Role-plays; Technical visits to local private and public institutions; Conferences with local professionals to exchange good practices; Job shadowing experiences; Workshops to rethink old practices and introduce new ones. By applying scientific knowledge, students are faced with real problems which they will try and solve. In addition, certain key aspects will be revealed, such as the investment of learners put into the project, the representation they have of the scientific phenomenon, or the time available. Moreover, students will not only be able to complete a project, but also to apply new technological tools, and acquire skills such as sketch drawing, mathematical calculations, new materials, concluding drafts, teamwork.
