It is a training course for teachers of Greek, which refers to the use of new technologies inside and outside the classroom, in an online or a live course.
Examples of good practice from the long experience of online teaching of the Hellenic Culture Centre since 2009 are mentioned.
Learners will explore a list of apps and tools to use and will discover and create useful and fun learning activities on their own. They will also have the opportunity to discover how the online learning platform of the Hellenic Culture Centre works.
It belongs to the EUROLTA Training and Certification Programme, but you can also attend it as a stand-alone course.
The (optional) Final Assigment of the trainee teachers is the production of an educational activity that takes into account the needs of a special group of students of Greek.
This Online teacher training course consists of 15 hours (one day of synchronous/live session 09.00-18.00 with the instructor and 5 hours of individual study and communication with fellow students to exchange ideas and experiences).
Apart from study hours according to a time-schedule, the trainees will attend four (4) hours online synchronous Skype sessions with the trainers (optional). The trainers will answer any questions in three days at the latest.
The synchronous sessions are not obligatory, but the trainees could participate in order to ask questions and “meet” all participants.
Trainee teachers have to upload at least one post in every Unit of this seminar and to upload at least ten answers to other participants. They also should work on the Final Assignment as well as to fill in the evaluation form of the seminar.
Trainers will be at the trainees’ disposal in order for the later to contact them through Skype, phone or e-mail.
