The use of technology provides many new opportunities for teaching. The success of school implementation depends crucially upon the vision and actions of the teacher. Teachers need to realise the benefits of technology for improving student’s understanding. The effective use of technology requires development of skills, some of which are specific to software and hardware, and some to pedagogy and practice of science. To help teachers to incorporate technology in their teaching and to use the modern teaching methods we offer teacher workshops and in-service trainings in the Netherlands but also internationally.
Our ultimate goal is the use of technology in real science classrooms. To achieve this goal we cooperate with the different stakeholders in education: educational authorities, schools, teachers, teacher trainers and researchers. In case you would like to organise a teacher workshop or in-service teacher training contact CMA.
In last years CMA has been involved in many international projects in which teacher training materials have been developed.
