Webinar: Digital content and textbooks Webinar: Digital content and textbooks

Digital content and digital textbooks

  • Webinar
  • 27 February 2014, 6PM CET

As schools take ownership of their virtual content, the desire for more personalised materials grows. This has led to some of the Advanced Schools within the network taking responsibility for developing their own digital content.

However, this has to meet the needs of the students and staff, but must also provide the quality and rigour that is demanded. What types of digital content are schools creating? Who creates the content in schools? How can we quality assure the content that is provided by the teachers?

Maria Teresa Godinho: "In this webinar I will show you some of the work of our AS focus group. I will tell you about the use of Virtual School, some free APPS that can be used namely Mathematics 4.0 and Geogebra. I will also tell you about some ebooks made by students".
