The third HUPE Split Branch meeting was held at Osnovna škola don Lovre Katića in Solin on January 19th, 2018. Nineteen members attended the Friday evening meeting. The agenda included two workshops:
- Oxford University Press, Lana Kralj: Insight into inquiry based learning
- Vanja Fazinić : Making flashcards and quizzes with the Cram app
It was a great pleasure to host Lana Kralj, the representative of our long–term associate Oxford University Press. Lana activated our curiosity, demonstrating how to create a fun and engaging classroom. She offered the specific examples and practical activities tailored to spark student curiosity and teach them how to become experts in answering their own questions. In a relaxed and inspiring atmosphere the participants gained an insight into benefits of inquiry based approach and how it supports development of student transversal skills- critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity.
In the second workshop the participants were introduced to Cram- an interactive digital tool for creating, studying, and sharing flashcards. In this hands-on workshop the teachers learnt how to:
- create an account with Cram.com
- navigate a large library of flashcards created by other users
- create their own stack of cards and share it with students.
The participants explored how to asses students’ knowledge via memorisation activities, games or a test, using Cram as a tool of formative assessment.
Thank you all for coming and hope to see you at our next meeting in February!
