FUTURE LEARNING WITH IPADS AND TABLETS

TABLETS ARE TRANSFORMING TEACHING AND LEARNING EXPERIENCES RADICALLY. THEY ALLOW FOR NEW POSSIBILITIES: A MORE PERSONALISED, VISUAL AND INCLUSIVE WAY OF LEARNING.

Mobile devices, such as smartphones or tablets are now commonplace in today´s society. Hence, we see a significant increase in their usage in schools and adult education. The use of mobile devices, however, leads to a radical and necessary change in the way we teach and learn. We believe that digital learning not only has the potential to increase creativity, but it can also boost the motivation and achievements for all learners.

IncluEdu has designed a full range of competency-based courses, which enable schools and teachers to successfully introduce mobile devices, such as tablets, into the classroom.

If you attend our courses, your school can apply for an Erasmus+ grant, covering the main part of the course fee, travel and subsistence costs.
