Where was I and why (what was the motivation)?
In the summer of 2023, I took part in a one-week ICT course in Florence as part of Hunfalvy's accredited Erasmus programme. I was attracted by the subject, including artificial intelligence, the city of Florence itself and the training facilities I already knew there.
About the course
The digital transformation of education means that we teachers have to adapt our lessons to new expectations. This includes planning and delivering online lessons, introducing digital content and activities in lessons, and adapting and creating digital materials. The aim of the course was to support teachers in their digital transformation to meet the challenges of the 21st century. The content of the course included a new feature on how the use of Artificial Intelligence (Chat GPT) in education can help both students and teachers.
How will I use it in my school?
As a result of the mobility, I became more determined that it is important for the teachers in our school to increase their knowledge of the use of technology in the classroom. I see it as a goal:a digitális oktatási erőforrások megismerése, a lehetséges hátrányok elkerülése
the use and integration of digital tools in the teaching and learning process
supporting the assessment process with digital tools and strategies;
engaging learners through digital tools;
using artificial intelligence.
Afternoon programmes, EU principles
In Florence, I learned about the symbols of European identity, such as art, science and the history of Florence: Renaissance art, humanism, the works of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Botticelli, the Duomo, one of the most important architectural symbols of the European continent, the historic centre of Florence, the World Heritage Piazza del Duomo, Piazza della Signoria and the Ponte Vecchio bridge.
Throughout its history, Florence has always been an inclusive city, tolerant of different cultures and religions. I have seen this in the city to this day: it continues to attract visitors from all over the world to discover and enjoy its unique art, architecture and cultural richness.
I have learned about Florence's sustainability issues, goals and elements that have been implemented.
The development of artificial intelligence is still in its infancy, but it will play a major role in our everyday lives, including education, in the next 5-10 years. We need to be prepared for this.
