My name is Maria Hartyanyi and my role here to facilitate your collaboration as the instructor for the TC01 module. I has been working several (and more) years long in the education, and my main field is the information technology (programming languages, databases) but among them one of the most important to discover the pedagogical potential of the new ICT technology in the education. May I ask you, to introduce yourself for us :) ?

smileHello everybody,
sorry if I'm late.
I'm a language teacher in a Secondary school from the south of Italy.
Last year I've been involved in a very interesting training for teachers called "Muvenation" about teaching and learning with MUVE's.
I'm very interested in using the technologies and web 2.0 tools with students and in the use of Moodle. (I've only tested some of the tools of Sloodle but I'd like to test them with students too).
I had never heard about this project (TENEGEN) before but it appears to be very interesting for me
Best regards
Annamalia

HI Annamalia

nice to find an Italian teacher here.
I think you can find here many interesting themes.
Tenegen is a Transfer of Innovation project based on the results of a previous SLOOP project. We are developing another TOI project based on SLOOP in Italy: Sloop2desc.
A first version of a e-learning course "Progettare e sviluppare risorse didattiche e corsi in rete basati sullo standard EUCIP" is arriving at the end just in these days. A new version of such a course will be delivered from next November.
If you are interested you can enrolle at http://w3.pa.itd.cnr.it/index.php/it/component/jforms/1/16.html.

All the best

Pierfranco

Hi Annamalia,

Hi Loreta, nice to meet you here, be welcome :)! What can we offer for you? I think you joined only to the small pilot about concept maps, or? I am sure your student are connected online so much as the students in our country. How to catch them by the same technology they love so much? The web 2.0 tools, like blogs, social networks, concept maps, online storrytelling, video sharing portal (like YouTube), etc. offer the chance to reach them, but we have to discover how? To join to the networked world teachers do not need so many ICT competences, only to find the way for collaboration online with other teachers - to be connected like the children :)! Try to make an experiement - as only as very small part of this course - with Concept Maps!

Ps: I am LdV coordinator and evaluator too - it is not an easy job, do you agree?

Hi Everybody!

My name is Elisiana (short name Eli). I teach English in a Foreign Language High School in the outskirts of Florence, Italy. I am really interested in learning how to handle the most common ICT tools as I want to be up-to-date and show my students that even non digital natives (like me ...big grin) are able to catch up with the newest tools!!! So I am eager and ready to learn and to practice here. Sometimes I feel a bit frustrated, though and I wonder whether I will be able to cope with it. What's more, I feel there is this sort of mania among students and teachers (just few teachers) about technology which puzzles me a bit: are we going to totally rely on these methods? To be technological or not to be technological, that is the question... or better how much technological should we be? smile

Hi Elisiana, you posted very stimulating thoughts! I understand your doubts exactly - the new technology is usually very agressive and makes people be dependent more than it would be useful especially for students. That is while so important - I think - for the teachers - for us- to follow the phenomenon of digital world! We should try to find the ways how the students can be initiated to use the networking not only for enjoy, but also to learn!

To answer your other questions concerning technology, I can tell you, that you are not alone! In the Hungarian course many teachers took part from social sciences being not familiar with ICT at all. The advantages of web 2.0 is just the possibility to collaborate online without being very trained in technology. One of the aims of this course just to get to closer to this world, which seemed to be really frustrating at the first look. However we have to be aware: information technology is in a heavy development, and it gives real innovations - but it has not been able to help the human beeings at the expectable level yet. These tools are marvellous really, and represents the creatitivity of humans, but we have to know, that at the background they are stupid machines :)!
Maria
