Future Classroom Scenarios


iTEC

Welcome to the Future Classroom ScenariosMOOC

On this page

The Future Classroom Scenarios course aims to introduce teachers, headteachers and ICT coordinators in schools to concepts, tools, and exchanges about the future classroom. The course is designed in response to the increasing challenges faced by educators around the world to accommodate the rising importance of technology in education and the impact this has on teaching and learning.

The course covers six modules which introduce you to key concepts like 21st century skills and allow you to exchange with your peers about your own experiences of trying out new activities and technologies in the classroom. During the course we will also reflect and discuss the role of technology tools in the future classroom and your current teaching and learning environments. A number of tools are introduced which help the process of innovation in the school and classroom but are equally useful for your everyday teaching practices.

The course is run by teachers for teachers and most of the learning will happen collaboratively so you will be asked to actively participate and share your thoughts and ideas with the other course members. We will be using a variety of tools that allow a collaborative learning process.

Prerequisites

The course is targeted at classroom teachers working in primary schools (students at least 5 years and maximum 13 years of age). However, the course is open to anyone interested in the topic and is free of charge.
