Purpose
  • Primary/Secondary Ed
The Digital Modules include innovative didactic tools such ascontent produced in a multimedia format and can be used in classroom activities, accompanied by a Handbook with didactical guidelines for teachers. There is alsoa tutorial on how to go through the Digital Modules. Every Digital Module is made up of 3 to 12 sections, each with a specific sub-topic. Each section has two visualizations. One for the student and one for the teacher.Student’s visualization features are the following:
  • Different resources (texts, images, audio, videos) each with a brief presentation.
  • Suggestions for the work in class (brainstorming questions, questions to guide the teacher’s exposition of that section’s sub-topic, source-related activities and so on).
Teacher’s visualization, on the other hand, provides all the information pertaining to that section’s sub topic and to the analysis of the featured resources. Moreover, teacher’s visualization features also a brief introduction to the Digital Module as a whole, a summary of contents and suggestion of didactical objectives.
