Education Innovation Center to be Opened ({{commentsTotal}})


A center to study innovative and interdisciplinary solutions in classroom learning environments will be opened at Tallinn University today.

The center's aim is to turn future and current teachers into pioneers of technological advances, who teach, rather than learn about new technology from children.

Eva Eisenschmidt, the Vice-Rector for Development at the university, told ETV today that the main problem currently seen in classrooms is that teachers do not know how to use technology for its intended purpose.

The center has eight laboratories and showpiece classrooms where current teachers and teachers-in-training can experiment with the most up-to-date technology and methods.
