Course Description

The training course comprises 8 hours of lectures and demonstrations and 15 hours of hands-on workshops. The lectures and demonstrations will be held in an auditorium equipped with a data projector and a laptop, whereas the workshops will be carried out in a multimedia laboratory where each participant will have direct access to a PC in order to carry out the planned exercises. One day’s sessions will be hosted at the Natural History Museum of Crete where participants will be introduced to the use of PDAs for enhancing the learning experience in museums, and of social tagging techniques for describing the museum collections.
Moreover, a visit to the Skinakas Observatory will regard innovative ways for creating links between schools, research centres and non-formal learning settings.
