Camara Skillbuilder is the basic ICT course offered to teachers and others in the field of education. Its focus is participants that have little or no experience in ICT and wish to improve their skills to enhance their working environment. For teachers, this course is the first essential course in the progression of integration of ICT in the workplace and classroom.
The course aims to introduce teachers and school professionals to the concepts of ICT. Through the course teachers will become familiar with how ICT can be used within the classroom as well as to improve the productivity of their own profession outside the classroom.
The primary method of delivery of the course is Instructor Lead Training (ILT) where the instructor will guide the participants through each module, while balancing a degree of theory with practical experience.
