MARCHET offers 4 different modules. Each module focuses on a certain theme. Within a module teachers can deepen their knowledge on how to use technology in a didactically sound manner. Every module contains information on the added value of using educational technology. Furthermore, teachers get the opportunity to share experiences with colleague teachers and to explore and practice with several tools. This way, teachers will be able to redesign (part of) their education in a didactically sound manner when they want to introduce technology into their teaching.
