There is no single way of learning, but rather there are different types of learners and teaching methods. Trainers need to adapt the curricula to these different settings. Learning activities are no longer only related to the traditional face-to-face classroom training, and trainers should accept that learning is a continuous process. It goes through many stages and can take place in different ways as long as they are relevant to the trainers’ abilities and the learners’ needs.
Technology is changing the way our society works. It offers us new opportunities and gives us access to sources we could have never imagined before. Unfortunately, our education system is not flexible enough to apply all these free opportunities. In most of the cases it is very hard for trainers to adapt their teaching plans to their learners’ needs. Many trainers find they do not have the necessary skills or time to adapt material to different methods of learning.
This project aimed to solve these problems by creating a reference guide for language trainers, helping them to acquire or improve their ICT skills. The guidebook instruct language trainers in a simple and understandable way how to effectively apply modern technology in their training thus providing a more diverse range of learning options.
