Intellectual Output 4 – Digital Guidetool
There are very few sources to help teachers to get proper information about Web 2.0 tools and their integration in Hybrid Education easily. This output will define an e-source that guides primary and secondary teachers in order to find the Web 2.0 tool which they are looking for more easily. This Guide will also guide teachers on how to integrate Web 2 tools into their hybrid classes.
This output will provide a solid resource for teachers. They can find the specific tool which is most suitable for their purpose. They can use the digital guidetool like a search engine to find the Web 2.0 tool they are looking for. The guidetool is also an engine that brings information, access, and comparison with the other Web 2.0 tools. It will also guide the primary
and secondary teachers on how to utilize the specific Web 2.0 tool effectively with the instructions. Such a digital guidetool on the features of Web 2.0 tools in the form of a search engine will be the first of its kind provided for the primary and secondary teachers.
This output primarily targets primary and secondary teachers. The Digital Guidetool will also help all primary and secondary teachers from partner countries and all over Europe.
Web 2.0 tools in the curriculum will be defined in The Guidetool. State of Art Analysis results, Pilot Scheme feedback and the reports to be prepared during the project will be our starting point. The leader of this output is SPEL.
Work Package 1- Building-up The Guidetool
Activity 1- Experts from SPEL will categorize the types of Web 2.0 tools that are decided in the curriculum.
Activity 2- Each partner (Gulbenes, VAEV, EDUCENTRUM, APEC, La Palma, BTE, and SPEL) will be assigned to prepare one or two categories of the guidetool. The categories of the Guidetool will be distributed according to partners’ expertise.
Activity 3- For standardization purposes, SPEL will prepare a common format for sections of the Guidetool. Partners will use this common format for the categories they will prepare.
Activity 4- Each partner (Gulbenes, VAEV, EDUCENTRUM, APEC, La Palma, BTE, and SPEL) will prepare the assigned sections of the guidetool in English. The partners will gather detailed information about the tools. The information will include clear and short explanations on what is the tool used for and how to integrate the relevant Web 2 tool in hybrid classes.
Activity 5- SPEL will combine the content delivered by each partner and develop the digital Guidetool as a search engine.
Activity 6- Guidetool will be arranged as multi-language. So, each partner (Gulbenes, VAEV, EDUCENTRUM, La Palma, BTE, and SPEL) will translate the content.
Activity 7- SPEL will integrate the translations to the digital Guidetool.
Work Package 2- Evaluation
Activity 1- Once the digital Guidetool is completed, APEC will prepare quality evaluation forms.
Activity 2- The quality evaluation form will be applied to project partners’ teaching staff and the users of Guidetool
Activity 3- Considering the evaluation of results, the Guidetool will be revised by SPEL.
Activity 4- After revising, guidetool will be available for public access through our e-learning platform.
Activity 5- The Guidetool will be announced in project web site and project social media accounts. I will also be announced by all partner organizations through their websites and social media accounts.
Activity 6- VAEV will prepare an e-newsletter. After preparing the newsletter, VAEV will share it with partners through the project’s Google Drive. All partners will send this newsletter to the stakeholders.
