Competition ˝Make the Right Move: Inspire Science Education˝ raised interest among Croatian teachers

Croatian competition ˝Make the Right Move: Inspire Science Education˝ aims at spreading the usage of ICT in teaching technical, science and similar subjects. It is organized by The Croatian Academic and Research Network – CARNet.  76 competitors submitted applications, mostly teachers and instructors. They will compete in technology enhanced learning in the area of natural and technical sciences, engineering, technology, informatics and similar. Specifically, they will implement a learning session by using ICT and present it to the competition committee later this year.

The competition is organized in several stages. First, in the following months CARNet will organize various workshops throughout Croatia and webinars for the competitors where they will be trained in using relevant e-tools, repositories and similar, but also the pedagogical point of view concerning organizing a technology enhanced learning session.

Second, competitors will apply online their learning scenario of a learning session they have implemented together with a presentation about pupils/learners impression. In the third phase the Committee will choose the best 10 competitors.  These 10 will go forward to present their learning session at the CARNet Users Conference CUC 2014 in November, where the first 3 contestants will be awarded with attendance at an international conference, a laptop and a tablet.

Now that the competition is in progress, good luck to all 76 competitors.  May the best three win!
