Background

The global impact of Covid-19 is multifaceted and is clearly manifested in almost all sectors, particularly the health, economic and education sectors. Since the announcement of the virus as a pandemic in March 2020, there have been a plethora of daily reports on its impact on the lives of millions across the world. Accordingly, every country’s primary concern has become to diminish the spread of the virus and alleviate its effects on the society in general, and the most vulnerable communities in particular.

In April 2020, a rapid assessment survey was conducted by the ILO-UNESCO-WBG on TVET and described the current state of TVET during COVID-19 period. In this report, current TVET trends highlighted and stated that the TVET sector should have 4E (E-Content, E-Learning, Education Technology and Entrepreneurship).

Technology has become an increasingly important part of students’ lives beyond school, and even within the classroom it can also help increase their understanding of complex concepts or encourage collaboration among peers. Because of these benefits, current educational practice suggests that teachers implement some form of technology in their classrooms – but many teachers face difficulties in doing so. Cost, access, and time often form considerable barriers to classroom implementation, but another obstacle is a lack of knowledge regarding how technology can best be used to benefit students across diverse subject matter.

In this context, Colombo Plan Staff College is planning to organize a webinar on “Use of Mentimeter for Learner Centered Learning''. This webinar will be dedicated to CPSC member countries TVET practitioners to build the capacity on how to use Mentimeter to teach and connect remotely with your students. Learn how to create a presentation, what question types are particularly useful for teachers and how to share it with your students. The other objective of the webinar is to share Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) and Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition (SAMR) Models to enhance teaching and learning process. The online collaborative tools help to engage learners through innovative presentations. After completion of this webinar, the participants are able to create and setup their own mentimeter presentation. Furthermore, understand the concept and importance of TPACK and SAMR models. The outcome will be aligned with different interpretations and expectations of digital innovation concept from the various stakeholders’ perspectives.
