Introduction For Courses-Different Tools Applied-Preparation

programmerman-animatedBefore starting a course it is very important to make a GOOD preparation. First the preparation of the educators, teachers, instructors for themselves to acquire the necessary knowledge and/or to update their existing knowledge for the given topic and THEN the preparation for THEIR learners (students) preparation; THE WAY how the course will get given and ALSO some HELP for the learners. HELP for the learners (students)!? YES! WHY and HOW?

Learners (students) NEED to know WHAT will get taught, WHY is it necessary to learn it?, WHAT are the “EdTech Tools” used?, how many time will be necessary for that course?, are the used tools necessary for the 21st Century workforce?, will I need these tools for my eSkills portfolio?…

Some quotes about preparation: Well begun is half done. [Aristotle], “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” ― Abraham Lincoln, “A man prepared has half fought the battle.”, “The beginning is half of the whole.” [Hesoid] ,

.It is important THAT the learners (students) know the how-to about the course from Start to destination, intermediate stations included. I suggest (advice) ALSO to give THEM up from the beginning of the course(s) (or even when You announce a NEW course weeks before…) the necessary links WHERE the learners could download and/or create an account online (in case of an online platform). Play the “curiosity” card 😉 Some (most?) will try it out already before the course(s) start and so having ALREADY some knowledge and skills, more easy for the course; YOU will save time which YOU could spend for deeper learning later 😉

Valuable Tools For The Learners (Students) AND Teachers (Educators, Instructors) For Preparation

ruotadentata2architet01First of all, let me tell YOU that I still use handwritten preparation first before I use an EdTech tool later. I advice YOU to do the same (NOT mandatory…). WHY!? As YOU start with an idea in YOUR head, let it GO, let it FLOW. AND THAT goes BEST while using a pen and a piece of paper; NO need to concentrate about the how-to with the EdTech tool, just writing and drawing and/or sketching. YES, sketching or “Sketchnoting” are wonderful “tools” for preparation and for bringing down ideas on cold print. THEY boost ALSO and/or amplify creativity thinking! WE will discover now, below, WHAT different tools WE could use.
