Until recently, the focus of the professional public was still on the use of information and communication technologies in the educational process, but so far, many schools are not sufficiently equipped, and teachers are not sufficiently prepared to work meaningfully and effectively with them.
Nevertheless, there is now a need to go even further and focus on exploiting the opportunities offered by the digital space, and the European Union is aware of this. Its initiatives aim to provide teachers with enough opportunities to achieve high digital competence.
Current high school students belong to Generation Z. Working with this generation is extremely challenging. Young people are very skilful, technically proficient and playfully able to perform several activities at once.
In connection with the needs of the Generation Z and the penetration of digital technologies into the field of education, new requirements are placed on the learning environment and school facilities, but also on teachers. Teachers are representatives of Generation X.
This can cause problems for teachers, as they are required to keep up with the times and always be informed about technological developments, use them constructively and to be able to adapt modern technologies to the needs of the teaching process so that they are in line with the needs of pupils.
For the reasons mentioned above we have created this platform for high school educators to improve their technology and acquire (for them) new experience and skills to manage the teaching process more effectively.
The aim of this project is to create better opportunities for integrating new interactive content and innovative educational strategies into the school curriculum and practice of specific schools and facilities in the municipalities, cities and regions of countries belonging to the V4 region. The project is co-financed by the Governments of Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from International Visegrad Fund. The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.
