Development, Evaluation and Implementation of Digital Resources and an Online Platform (INTACT Project) in Bilingual Education

Ildikó I Szabó, Sarolta Lipóczi

Abstract


The INTACT project aims to support primary and secondary school teachers towards more effective pedagogical use of interactive technology devices in the classroom. This is achieved through the creation of a sample bank of interactive teaching and learning resources for science, mathematics, social science and language curricula for bilingual educational settings. All resources have been developed in accordance with the national curricula of the countries involved (DE/HU/IE/PT/RO/ES). In order to have an open architecture that will be available into future years, the resources are implemented in HTML5 standard. The facilitation of web access will thereby expand the adoption of the resources to a wider range of platforms and mobile devices (whiteboards, touchpads, tablets, mobile phones, among others) and additionally meet the requirements of different technical infrastructures and systems. A main focus of the INTACT project is the development of an online collaborative learning community comprised of both students and teachers. The INTACT online platform has been developed to house this community and accommodate the interactive teaching and learning resources created. Participating teachers can utilise INTACT’s online platform to create their own online units of work, lessons and interactive resources or utilise existing teaching and learning resources created by others.
