Summer School on Educational Resources in Technology-enhanced Science Learning - Discover Cosmos
The Greek Ellinogermaniki Agogi school organises on 6 - 11 July 2008 a summer school titled "DISCOVER COSMOS: Educational Resources in Technology-enhanced Science Learning". The summer school aims to facilitate European science teachers in using efficiently existing tools and services for creating, sharing and searching reusable educational resources, so as to support and improve their day-to-day teaching activities.
The training course will provide science education teachers and trainers with an introduction to learning objects, educational metadata and learning objects repositories, together with hands-on experiences on practical approaches and tools that are commonly used to support the learning object paradigm.
The teachers will be invited to participate in the COSMOS (www.cosmos-project.eu) user group. COSMOS is a large scale science web repository, which gives access to a community of 1200 science teachers who are applying inquiry based techniques in their everyday teaching.
The summer school is targeted on science and maths teachers in high schools. Deadline for registrations is 1 May 2008. Participants have a possibility to receive an EC grant from Comenius by submitting a request for support to the COMENIUS National Agencies.
