The webinars organised by IUL and Microsoft get underway

In April, 8 free-of charge webinars, organised by IUL and Microsoft on the themes of education, didactical innovation and new technologies for inclusive teaching, kick-start.

The initiative is born out of the partnership started last February between the American company and IUL, with the aim of carrying out training activities, mainly addressed to teachers.

This is the programme:

11/04 – Innovation of the school system and ICT
18/04 – Audio-visual language in the class
02/05 – Coding and computational thinking
09/05 – Educational robotics
23/05 – Small schools and distance learning
30/05 –  The makers philosophy and STEM at school
06/06 – Minecraft in the class
13/06 – Technologies for inclusive teaching

The first event is the webinar on innovation of the school system and ICT, on 11 April, led by Inidre’s President, Giovanni Biondi, and Microsoft’s Teacher Engagement Manager, Giuseppe Della Pietra.

Microsoft operates also in the field of education with the platform Microsoft Education, designed to offer services and tools for the learning of students, teachers, headmasters and everyone wishing to acquire knowledge of the education and training sectors. The platform hosts an online community, Microsoft Educator Community, with more than 100.000 teachers of different nationalities.
