Teacher’s Training

The aim of the INTELed training is to advance the knowledge of in-service SEN teachers, on the use of multi-sensory and embodied technologies in terms of learning and assessment. This will be achieved by building on practical experience rather than on theoretical knowledge.

The INTELed training of in-service SEN teachers will combine modern ICT learning methods and assessment techniques with multi-sensory practices. The major concept is to provide teachers with the necessary skills that will help them integrate the multisensory and embodied technologies in their educational practices.
