Last week, the second training for the project InTeMIS took place in Athens and was hosted by Action Synergy. InTeMIS aims to introduce ICT based Flipped Learning in VET Schools and Centers. An innovative and student-centred pedagogical approach, to increase the quality of teaching and learning, to help reduce early school leaving, to decrease the number of under-skilled teenagers, and ultimately to support modernization of education and training systems.
During the training students and teachers from Trollaskagi Comprehensive College from Iceland and Leonardo Da Vinci VET school from Italy exchanged their best practices and their experience concerning flipped learning. Teacher from Keilir (Iceland) Sigrún Ólafsdóttir together with Arnbjorn Olafsson leaded the training course. Essenia from Italy had the management responsibility.
The students and teachers were presented exampled of the flipped learning technique, they were introduced to some theory and, most importantly, they participated in a workshop in which they created their own flipped courses examples which they presented to their teachers.
Next up for InTeMIS is the final project meeting in June. To learn more about the project, visit its website.
