Day eight : Generation Why ? | Student presentation

Generation Why ? Presentation by Dani, Didac, Jaime & Rafael 

Monday morning and time to remobilize teachers and students:

The students prepared a small activity, that showed the “digital gap” and cultural differences between different pupils all over the world. There are huge differences in the daily life of schools and ICT in schools around the world.

At work.

Second time the presentation :

The students figured out that there are still borders in europe – even when they are less visible then before. There are two different borders:
– economic boarders
– technological borders – like ICT in school

They also showed, that there is a social gap, that saperates one social class from another
“Digital gap” – there is a difference between those who have access to internet and those who have not

Dani, Didac, Jaime & Rafael: a great « thank you » for your implication, proposition and work. A very good introduction for this second week.

Day 5: Workshop at the University of Liège : building a lesson with “Scenariogramme” ©

Brigitte DENIS - workshop at University of LiegeOn Friday March 14, the IP students went to the University of Liège to meet Brigitte DENIS, teacher and lecturer at the CRIFA (Centre de Recherche sur l’Instrumentation, la Formation et l’Apprentissage). She prepared a workshop about the added value of ICT and social media in teaching. During the first part, the students had to think keywords related to “a task”, “a tool” and “an added value”. During the second part, the students had to build a “Scenariogramme” © : this means linking lesson’s objectives, a methodology (including ICT and social media tools and strategies) and the evaluation of the learning outcomes (with the added value of the ICT and social media tools).

Day five : Using technology for teaching ?

What is a SWOT analysis” by Patrick DEJARNAC (teacher HELMo, Liège-Belgium)
Définition :
A SWOT analysis (alternatively SWOT Matrix) is a structured planning method used to evaluate the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats involved in a project or in a business venture. A SWOT analysis can be carried out for a product, place, industry or person. It involves specifying the objective of the business venture or project and identifying the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable to achieving that objective. The technique is credited to Albert Humphrey, who led a convention at the Stanford Research Institute (now SRI International) in the 1960s and 1970s using data from Fortune 500 companies. The degree to which the internal environment of the firm matches with the external environment is expressed by the concept of strategic fit. Source : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SWOT_analysis
