PENSA, the CIVIS project for teachers
On June 27 and 28, the Professionalisation of Teachers using Digital Technology for Empowerment and Citizenship Support (PENSA) course will be held at Coris, in the Wolf lecture hall, via Salaria 113, Rome. The course aims to develop teachers' skills for critically using digital technology in education. The project, funded by the Erasmus + Programme, is coordinated by the Université Aix-Marseille within the framework of CIVIS activities.
The project focuses on the main current issues in higher education and society; in particular, the initiative responds to the need to provide blended, distance and/or co-modal education (i.e. classroom education delivered simultaneously to online students) and to educate young people on the implications of the use of social networks (Facebook, YouTube, etc.) on a psychological, sociological, economic and ideological level.
Teachers will be trained to optimise blended and co-modal teaching in their classrooms, integrating telecollaboration and virtual exchanges on digital citizenship topics. The core group will implement virtual exchanges by adopting an enquiry pedagogy or collaborative creative writing approach.
Through these actions, PENSA will enable 400 students across Europe to develop their digital and multilingual skills, collaboration ability, and autonomous learning.
