DESIGN OF TEACHING. MATERIALS AND RESOURCES FOR EAD
The materials play a very important role, since they have a teaching purpose and express a pedagogical proposal.
The materials fulfill several functions: they increase the motivation of our students with serious, interesting and attractive developments.
The tutor is the key person to give information to the students
The feedback received from tutors in both formal and informal assessments is critical.
The tutorial function is one of the pillars on which distance education is consolidated
EVALUATION AND QUALITY CONTROL OF THE PROJECT
The purpose of evaluation has always been to make decisions for change and improvement throughout the educational process.
The indicators of evaluation are statements that describe signs or manifestations that clearly show the learnings of the students regarding a capacity or attitude.
Thus, in every assessment process, there are basic skills, indicators, techniques and verification tools that allow us to know the achievement of learning.
TECHNOLOGY IN THE SERVICE OF LEARNING
This tool provided by the new technology must be a true educational innovation.
New technologies allow for a change in the way of educating more focused on the educator and not so much on the educator.
For all this, the use of technological innovation in education, as the basis of a real and effective interaction between teachers and parents, is the true change of form in educational teaching.
