The Institute of Education project received the European Innovative Teaching Award
The Institute of Education project "Making Technology Meaningful Through Digital Pedagogy" was chosen as one of the laureates of the European Innovative Teaching Award (EITA2022). The project received recognition in the secondary education category.
The European Innovative Teaching Award is an annual initiative that showcases outstanding teaching practices within the Erasmus+ programme and recognises the work of teachers and their schools engaged in European cooperation projects. In 2022, the yearly theme is linked to the New European Bauhaus (NEB) initiative of the Commission: “Learning together, promoting creativity and sustainability”.
The project lead, Associate Professor of Educational Technology Mario Mäeots said: "Our project is an excellent example of successful international cooperation of the university and general education schools". As the result of the project, the guidelines on how to create lesson plans that incorporate the use of digital tools in the classroom were developed. In the project, 25 teachers who teach students between 10-12 years were involved. In addition to the Institute of Education, project had partners from Finland, German and Iceland.
The European Award Ceremony and networking event will take place on 25-26 of October in Brussels.
