In addition to in-class activities, the summer programme will be completed by a number of on-site visits to different educational institutions (e.g. schools) and conversations with practitioners (educational technologist, entrepreneurs, etc). Both visits and conversations will provide the opportunity for the students to see how educational technology is incorporated in concrete educational settings.
PS: Only complete applications including all annexes submitted by the deadline will be considered for selection.

The Centre for Educational Technology works on seven topics:
The Centre has been and is involved in many international research and development projects in Educational Technology and ICT (e.g., FP7 projects Science Created by You (SCY), Go-Lab and Ark of Inquiry [as coordinator]). Research by members of the Centre has been published in many high-level research publications and a learning module developed in partnership with the FP7 SCY project received the Science Magazine Award for Inquiry-Based Science Instruction in 2014.
Through this programme I learnt about the interdisciplinary nature of the field of educational technology. The programme also reiterated to me some important points such as technology not to be at the centre of teaching & that the aims/objectives of the lesson should decide the meaningful usage & form of technological tools. I also got introduced to some new technological ideas & tools such as AR/VR, Golabz, Sports trak app.
