After the COVID -19 breakout, there was a tremendous shift to online education. Many teachers were novices in using digital tools and teaching online, while others ran out of ideas in digital environments!

During the progress of the iLikeIT2 project, we managed to develop ideas for learning scenarios and the use of educational digital tools. So, let’s look at these findings and get inspired to modify and elevate your curriculum for less monotonous online or offline lessons!

Proposal 1

Type of tool: Slack

Learning objective: Acquire communication skills

Collaborative element: Communication

Aim of the task: To join the correct channels on the app, deliver their queries and execute instructions in written form via chatting.

Activity: To ask queries and reply to their colleagues’ & supervisors’ questions effectively & instantly

Why to use it?

The users will learn to communicate effectively by chatting online and solve any difficulty they face by written instructions

Proposal 2

Type of tool: AZ Screen recorder

Learning objective: Learn-by-design objective

Aim of task: To learn by recording experiences related to the topic

Activity: Imagine we are in a VET course of hairdressing. Teachers/learners can film themselves carrying out the hairdressing act and then make a self-assessment of their task to post it on the platform to ask for feedback/comments.

Why to use it?

This is a way to enhance participation and to learn from teachers’ practice (as they will be able to see how they carry out their activities and acquire new techniques that they can later replicate. If it is learners who film themselves, it can be a perfect idea to see what they are doing right and what they could get better at (it tends to be very effective to see ourselves perform a given activity).

Proposal 3

Type of tool: Miro Dashboard

Learning objective: Acquire collaborative skills

Collaborative element: Collaboration & Sharing options

Aim of task: To share the charts/maps successfully and collaborate

Why to use it?

Users can demonstrate an idea or the next steps of a project visually or do brainstorming and give feedback. A digital tool will bring extra graphics to move around easily and highlight different ideas.
