A Visual Manifesto
A Visual Manifesto for Language Teaching is a short film by Anna Whitcher and Kieran Donaghy. The film examines the increasingly important role of images in our world, and how we can encourage students to engage with images more meaningfully and creatively in our educational systems.
Technology Tools for Teachers
An e-book aimed at providing teachers with a toolkit to examine and use tools for education. Among the Creativity Tools you will find instructions about how to help learners to familiarise with Video Making, Digital Storytelling, Data Visualisation, Infographics and other innovative uses of media to learn.
The Digital School
The Digital School is the key component of New School vision with 7 million visitors so far. The use of New Technologies becomes a catalyst for changing:
the content of the Curriculum and school knowledge,
teaching and learning,
the relationship between teachers and pupils,
the relationship between parents and school.
“The Digital School” constitutes a holistic approach with parallel development of all the parameters that experience has shown to be critical for the successful introduction of ICT to schools. Specifically, a number of actions are being implemented that are organized along five basic axes:
Enhancement of network infrastructure and electronic equipment at schools, aiming at creating a digital classroom equipped with fast Internet connection and interactive smart boards, while teachers and pupils interact in a dynamic way by using all modern ICT tools.
Rich, interactive e-books that corresponds to the curricula for all grades and courses.
Teacher training in the educational utilization of new technologies.
Integrated system for the electronic administration of education and the management of education data.
Horizontal support actions.
