Teaching the tech-savvy youth of today requires teachers who are dedicated and committed to keeping abreast of the latest technology and digital learning methods. The problem for many teachers is that improving your skill and knowledge costs both time and money, both of which are often in short supply.

An online course could be the answer. They can often be completed in your free time, at a pace that suits you, and they cost considerably less than a university or college course. The trick is to find the courses that best suit your requirement.

Eiffel Corp's Digital Teaching and Learning online course is perfect for teachers looking to harness the latest in technology to enhance learning and engage students.

One lucky teacher stands a chance of winning a course worth R13 950 from Eiffel Corp tailored toward enhancing their skills and thereby improving the learning experience for their pupils.

Applied correctly, technology can help you engage with your pupils in their "digital" language. It can also aid your administration processes and create a space for interactive learning.

Learn how to use these tools to complement your face-to-face classes, getting the most out of both offline and online learning.

Simply tell us how you would use the course to bring new ways of learning into the classroom. Send an email with your name, surname and school's name and your answer not exceeding 150 words to: [email protected] 

The IOL/Eiffel Corp competition will run until August 27 at 6pm.

The course starts on September 10, 2018 and entails 6 weeks of of online learning and a 1.5 day attendance and final exam at a venue in Gauteng.
