on Wed, 03/30/2011 - 17:09

TELLConsult was invited by EnAIP FVG,  Ente ACLI Istruzione Formazione Professionale Friuli Venezia Giulia,  to join an initiative 

to apply for an EU Leonardo, Transfer of Innovation Grant. The project's aim is to meet the need of schools and VET institutions providing teachers/trainers with innovative didactic methodologies like concept and mind mapping combined with a full exploitation of IWB applications. TELLConsult  is to contribute expertise on IWBs in education (Koenraad, 2008). The project's specific objectives are:

  • to use concept maps as a tool to improve evaluation of learning process outcomes
  • to use mind maps as an aid to teach students how to collect, synthesize and reformulate information and knowledge
  • to use the interactive whiteboard as an integration tool which enhance the power of all the data-mapping tools for educational purposes, linking them to other pedagogical resources available in the classroom, like the internet, local resources, cooperative learning tools.

The application was successfully submitted and the hopes are high for a positive result to be published in the second half of the year. 

Participation also means another opportunity for TELLConsult to be a linking pin between this and the iTILT project, contributing by cross-fertilisation and dissemination of results.
