Google Workspace for Education, Pedagogy and Methodology
Realistic exploratory classroom practice
This course is based on the daily work and exchange between teachers and students. We focus on classroom methodology but also take a closer look at how current research in pedagogy can be reconciled with teachers ‘and students’ use of Google Workspace for Education. The goal is for teachers to get a much clearer picture of how they can begin to develop their way of working with students based on the tools in Google Workspace for Education.
We alternate between reviews, practical exercises and group discussions during the day. Of all our courses, this is the one that teachers are usually most grateful for!
Pedagogical and methodological starting point
We know that the school is in the middle of a major change effort and we know that teachers often experience that it can be difficult to have time to sit down and take a closer look at what the research points to. We take the time to plan lessons and discuss the results. The day is based on collective learning and exchange with other colleagues.
With us or with you?
We carry out our training on site in your premises. It is also possible to use our own training facilities with us. All training takes place online in Google Workspace for Education and course participants use their own computers. The course material is posted as a Google document and is thus available to the participants via their Google accounts even after completing the training.
The training is 8 hours long and is suitable for a group of a maximum of 20 people.
- The principles behind 21st century skills
- Formative assessment
- Collaborative learning for students
- Training and support in using Google Workspace for Education to build a learning environment
Examples of researchers and inspirers who lift during the day:
John Hattie has researched the efforts of principals, schools and teachers that actually have a major impact on student achievement. We want to focus on Hattie’s emphasis on qualitative feedback, formative assessment and pedagogical relationship between teacher and student.
James Nottingham has developed a number of methods for teachers to take note of, including what John Hattie highlights in his research. Nottingham’s method with “The learning pit” is an example of a methodology that we believe makes a difference.
Carol S. Dwek
Carol S. Dwek has researched students’ ways of thinking about school and learning. She notes that the attitude of students can be divided into “fixed mindset” or “flexible mindset”, where the latter has an extremely much greater chance of getting a qualitative learning that leads on.
