Supporting Primary and Secondary Education Through a Centre for Distance Training
Save to My Collections
The rapid evolution of science and technology causes changes in all aspects of every day life. It has become necessary for everybody to develop learning skills and have the opportunity for life long training in order to conform to the demands these changes impose. Especially for the teachers who play major role in the application of the educational system, mechanisms providing continual training and daily support need to be established. In our country, the teachers' training is facing a lot of difficulties due to the fact that there are a lot of distant and secluded regions and islands. The use of the information and communication technologies opened up new opportunities for accessing educational material and participation in distance courses, which can be better adapted to the trainee's needs, offering greater interactivity, providing more possibilities of individualisation of the learning process, in which the trainer is not a mere transmitter of knowledge and the trainee is not just a passive receiver. The Hellenic Pedagogical Institute has introduced a Distance Training Centre, called "Hellenic Distance Training Centre" (HDTC, http://hdtc.pi-schools.gr) which provides new ways for training and collaboration between scientists, teachers and students.
