“MENTORSHIP AND ICT IN EDUCATION”

Armenia | Building English Language Capacity for Armenian Students and Teachers | 13 May 2022




As a part of a Building English Language Capacity for Armenian Students and Teachers program (BELCAST), throughout March 21-26, 10 Armenian mentor teachers participated in a 6-day in-depth “Mentorship and ICT in Education” face to face training led by qualified TEFL and ICT specialists.

The 6-day in-depth “Mentorship and ICT in Education" training conducted for 10 mentor teachers aimed at equipping the teachers of English with specific hard skills (TEFL) combined with soft skills (ICT skills). Along with this, the training addressed basic mentorship skills such as reflective practice, developing mentorship plans and sessions, key components of mentorship, etc. TEFL topics such as principles of lesson planning, types of assessment, pedagogical principles of ICT/Technology-enhanced education, etc. were successfully supported by ICT tools, such as Mindmup, Learning Apps, Google forms, Socrative, Quizzis, Miro, Linoit, Padlet, Edpuzzle, Screencast-O-matic, Canva, Office Sway as well as some fun tools effectively used at the classroom, such as My Story Book, Plot Generator, Cloze Text creator, Answer garden, Animated Drawing.

Before the training, each of the participants were asked to bring a lesson plan developed by them earlier, so that at the end of the training they would enhance it with new ICT tools learned at the sessions. Their ICT-enhanced lesson plans which they improved with every new ICT session, were finalized in the Mindmup, and later posted in the Moodle platform. This hands-on experience proved to be very successful. The training helped the 10 mentor teachers become more competent specialists who can also motivate and guide other teachers to apply innovative ICT resources in their classrooms.

A quote was submitted from Gayane Yeritsyan, the mentor teacher from Vanadzor: “Thanks for really wonderful, intensive spring holidays!”
