Erasmus + Profesores

Tablets and Smartphones: using mobile devices as educational tools. Erasmus +. KA 101.


El pasado mes de junio, exactamente del 24 AL 29 de junio nuestra compañera Celia Olivares tuvo la oportunidad de participar en un curso estructurado en Dublín bajo el proyecto ERASMUS + KA101 bajo el nombre: NUEVAS METODOLOGÍAS PARA FOMENTAR EL APRENDIZAJE ACTIVO Y CONSEGUIR LA PLENA INTERNACIONALIZACIÓN DEL IES CAÑADA DE LA ENCINA. A continuación os dejamos el diario que escribió cada uno de los días que estuvo allí, acompañado de unas fotos.



Day 1.  Today I’ve started the course “Tablet and smartphones: mobile technology as educational devices”. The first part of the class has been dedicated to getting to know each other and stablishing the course aims. Later, we’ve started to work through a platform called slack, really useful to share links or materials in a work group.

After that, we’ve started to review teaching apps, as kahoot, already used for most of us (although I’ve learnt any additional options) and padlet. This was new for me. It gives you a blank wall where you put anything you want on it. It is useful to get the opinion of the students about some subject (e.g. piece of news, extract from a novel, etc.), to do a brainstorming, to get the general knowledge on a subject before starting it or to give information about a topic before developing it in class (similar to a flipped classroom).




Day 2. Second, intense and productive day in Dublin. As I’ve got afternoon classes, I’ve taken advantage of the morning to make some tourism. I’ve visited the Trinity College (Dublin’s University) and its marvelous library whose jewel is “The book of Kells” (a 9th century manuscript). After that, I’ve gone to the Natural Museum History, it’s worth a visit.

Regarding the classes, today I’ve seen really interesting and varied resources. Firstly, we have learnt how to create a YouTube channel; secondly, we’ve used an app called thinglink that allows you to create interactive pictures (including text box, pictures, videos, etc.); thirdly, we’ve used canva, that gives you the possibility to create different materials: posters, homework, reports, cards, etc. Finally, we’ve taken a look at the possibilities of genially, similar to thinglink but it has lots of options, such as preparing presentations, gamification, creating stories, etc.

And that’s all for today, here you have a few pictures of the day!


Day 3. Today has been a really interesting and fun class. We have started to use and app yo edit photos, called 'snapseed' that gives you varied and intuitive options. 

After that, I've introduced our high school with the help of the great Erasmus video edited by our students!

Tomorrow, we'll get started in video edition and for that, we've worked the last part of the class to prepare and record a short video that we'll edit tomorrow.

During the morning, we've made a Dublin tour and visited the St Patrick's cathedral. 

Here you have some pictures that summarize this wonderful day!


Day 4. Today we have worked on editing the films we recorded yesterday with the program Power director. After, we have learnt to use the Flipgrid app, where you create classes (grids) and insert topics. The students have to upload videos to answer the task. Then, we have had a fun moment seeing our short films and another high school has made its presentation. Finally, we have prepared some quizzes with Socrative. 

In the morning, we've visited the Guinness factory and it's been really interesting! Here you have some pictures about this visit


Day 5. Today’s been the last day of the course. We've started creating a google form. Then, using google sites, we've created a simple site. It's an interesting and easy resource to create our website! After, we've learnt to use edpuzzel, an app that allows you to stop a video and insert questions along it. Once the student answers the question, he continues seeing the video. Finally, you get its results. 

During the second part of the class, we've used a new app called mimind that is used to make diagrams about a topic. 

During the morning, we've visited Christchurch (the Dublin Cathedral) and Dublinia (a museum where the history of Dublin is explained)
