Main project assumptions:
switch to hybrid education methods. The education systems are also going through a digital transformation phase worldwide. However, recent surveys showed that less than 40% of educators felt ready to use digital technologies in teaching and there is an urgent need for a well-prepared set of training materials for teachers. Digitizing education comes with its advantages and teachers gain more access to various sources of data and knowledge. This resulted in making education activities more interactive and engaging for students. With Covid-19 outbreak Hybrid Education term was added to our repertoire. Hybrid education combines traditional education and online learning. It emphasizes using the best option for each learning objective. Hybrid classrooms vary according to the specific needs of learners. In today’s world, using digital tools has become crucial. Technological developments affect education significantly. With the improvements of Web 2.0 tools, new educational approaches are formed. Using Web 2.0 tools in education provides a more adequate teaching environment. Letting students be more active in the classroom or increasing the efficiency of distance education are the main benefits of using Web 2.0 tools in education. The main purpose of this project is to enable primary and secondary school teachers to use Web 2.0 tools and increase the quality of hybrid education. The project outcomes will help teachers improve their digital skills and their profiles of teaching professions.
