The “MODERN project – Useful toolkit demonstration to evaluate and use digital tools in educational scenarios” webinar will take place on Monday, 21 May, 2018 at 16:00 CEST.

MODERN project aimed at helping teachers and trainers incorporate new digital and mobile learning tools into day to day teaching and training delivery. The webinar will present the results of the project that has identified, assessed and categorised the latest and popular digital teaching/training/learning tools. The webinar will present some demos as well. It will have two periods for questions: one after the presentation of project results and the other after the selected demos.

The project created a 10 category classification system to make it easy for anyone to find the best tool for their chosen teaching method. The MODERN project has been funded by the European Commission under the ERASMUS+ Programme. The project was solely interested in pedagogic potential, not “gimmicks” or commercial gain.
