Objectives & Outcomes

Γενικοί Στόχοι

The course aims to:

  • Provide theoretical and practical foundations regarding the application of new technologies in the educational process, as a contemporary evolution of education sciences.
  • Promote critical thinking in relation to the role of technology in teaching, learning and communication.
  • Foster teachers’ potential for expanding their horizons to contemporary theoretical and practical approaches of technology in communication and learning.
  • Modernize and upgrade the pedagogical field, strengthening the human resources of teaching personnel in issues concerning research and application of new technologies within a broader learning environment (and not only in the narrow confines of the school classroom) at a time of ongoing developments in information and communication technologies.
Συγκεκριμένοι Στόχοι

The course aims at the following:

  • The provision of a strong theoretical background for utilising new technologies into formulating a contemporary learning environment.
  • The development of research skills for studying and improving pedagogical practices with the utilisation of new technologies within the process of learning and communication.
  • The deeper understanding of basic and contemporary concepts regarding New Technologies of Learning and Communication and their integration into the learning process.
  • The development of optimal practices in utilising the New Technologies of Learning and Communication, through courses that at the same time develop the theoretical background, teaching methodology with the use of technology, but also the design of technological applications that promote learning and interaction in the wider learning environment.
  • The development of skills regarding the educational design of multifaceted and online applications of learning and communication.
  • The familiarization of students with a wide range of contemporary application and technology tools for designing and developing an interactive learning and communication environment.
