The Methodology for Using Digital Learning Tools

Website: smpmetodika.ugdome.lt

The idea behind Methodology for Using Digital Learning Tools is to encourage teachers to effectively use the advantages of ICT in teaching.

We hope that the Methodology will motivate teachers and create an opportunity for them to use not only materials created for subjects in the scope of the project “The distribution of the innovative teaching content” („Ugdymo turinio naujovių sklaidos modelis“), but also to start using the ICT for teaching other subjects. The DLT included in the project are: Lithuanian Language and Literature, History of Lithuania, Geography of Lithuania, Ethics, Native Languages of the National Minorities, Mathematics, Organic Chemistry, Arts and Technology.

The Methodology is also intended to influence the formation of new ways of thinking and shape a person’s world view. The basic concept of Methodology is based on network thinking.

The Methodology is targeted at teachers who are creative, eager to take on exciting new challenges and curious to find more about innovative teaching techniques. It will be useful whenever there’s an interdisciplinary link between the teaching subjects and ICT. We hope that this Methodology will improve the use of DLT for teaching process and bring teaching and ICT together.

The Methodology consists of 3 parts.
