Adapting education to 21st century skills
Educate-it assists teachers in innovating and blending their teaching practice. It also helps teachers use available IT tools to engage students and remove obstacles to effective teaching. Educate-it provides technical and didactic support to teachers getting started with one of the four subprojects contributing to educational innovation and the introduction of blended learning: E-lectures, E-assessment, the E-learning Environment and Innovation Projects. Teachers with their own ideas about how to improve their teaching practice with IT tools can submit a request for an innovation project on the Educate-it site. Teacher development and evaluation, quality assurance, and research into the effects of using IT in education are common themes throughout the programme.
