The training toolkit for teachers/educators will be available in the form of e-learning containing short term trainings (1-3 hours), in multimedia form (including films, hand-drawing, exercises, OER, etc.). It will concern the latest discoveries of neuroscience and neuro-pedagogy, which are not included in curricula at universities and the training offer in this area is poor. Moreover findings of neuroscience are published in highly specialized journals that teachers do not have access to. There should be emphasized that changing teachers’ approach is a key element to support the children development.
9 on-line training courses on the following topics will be developed, e.g.:
- learning styles
- how to teach children
- the latest discoveries of neuro-pedagogy
- adaptation of the teaching methodology to the individual needs of students (including learning styles)
- working based on the student’s resources
- how to discover the potential of students brain?
- multisensory teaching
- instructional trainings who to use the developed project products
The trainings will be free of charge, easily accessible and available for the public. Teachers will be able to participate in the selected training at any time and learn at their own pace. Self-paced learning will not require presence of external trainer. Each training will contain a theoretical introduction (in the form of videos e.g. the experts’ mini lectures), examples who to apply this knowledge in the teacher’s work and practical activities (exercises, case studies, tasks to be performed, etc).
The Training Toolkit would be geared to teachers’ needs to provide individually adjusted support to pupils; to shape the teaching methodology according to the needs of students; to use the teaching methods which are coherent with cognitive potential of students; to involve support parents in learning processes of their children. All project outcomes have potential for transfer and exploitation in other European countries.
