Technology's Growing Impact: Enhancing Learning and Skill Development in the Classroom

Course Description

Technology is increasingly present in society and, with it, in our lives. The inclusion of these technologies in our daily lives in the classroom will not only allow us to search for and generate content more easily, but will also provide us with a large number of new tools that will benefit learning and the development of new skills and competences in students.


The best way to learn something is by practicing. Therefore, the classes are approached in the most practical and interactive way possible. It is strongly recommended that participants bring their own laptop in order to be able to participate as actively as possible. If laptops are not available, equipment can be shared with other participants. Devices such as tablets or mobile phones may also be useful in certain areas and are welcome.

As it will be necessary to create user accounts on certain websites to use some tools, it is recommended that participants have their e-mail account information at hand to speed up the process (the tutor will never ask for this personal information). Of course, the tutor will always be available to assist with any problems or questions that may arise during the workshops.
