INNOVATIVE LE@RNING SCENARIOS - an approach to effective communication to suit the context and purpose of learning skills in the 21st century

In a world where everything is quickly changing, the big challenge is to find new strategies for engaging students. The shift between availability of knowledge and engagement for students requires educators to rethink teaching. Just as nature is an inspiration in all sorts of visual and performing arts, environmental awareness and protection of nature can kindle new ideas and projects. Globalization has accelerated the exchange of ideas and perspectives, thereby increasing the overall knowledge base. Current technology applications can be used in education and provide increased opportunities for extending content and perspectives to transform knowledge into innovative shared ideas. Technology, if used correctly, should make it possible to convert knowledge acquisition into a much more motivating and fostering educational programmes.

Skills for the 21st century skills are a priority when planning education programmes and, for that reason, it is important to explore collaborations, communications, critical thinking, innovations and problem solving. Therefore innovative learning environments are required to a tailored approach to education to suit the context and purpose of the learning skills in the 21st century.

Every teacher knows that emotion has a huge impact on the overall learning experience, but understanding the varying emotional needs of pupils can prove difficult. Technology can be used to help teachers consider the emotional impact of their learning activities.
This course is intended to equip all participants with key strategies to an effectively and inspiring communication in new learning scenarios. With the acquired knowledge, the participants can use them as a work tool to apply in the area of environmental education and also in the area of education in general.
