In the period of 28-30 June, took place in Sinaia the National Conference of the participants in the training program "Designing the educational software". During the event there have been presented the results and impact of the project funded from structural funds.

"The teachers have had the occasion to exchange experience on the benefits of carrying out and using their own educational content in the classroom. Experts in designing educational software have held scientific papers for informing participants on the novelties in the field", has declared Mrs. Simona Tanase, project Manager within the Ministry of Education, Research, Youth and Sports.

1,775 teaching staff from the pre-university education has been trained within this project, which aimed at developing the skills with respect to developing own educational software applications and improving the capacity to use interactive teaching-learning methods.

The graduates of the training program, supported by 72 trainers, will receive professional certificates bearing transferable credits and diplomas which give them the status of creator of educational software.

The project has contributed to the adjustment of the teaching process to the specific needs of the pupils, indirect beneficiaries being approximately 3 million pupils throughout the country. Using in classroom the educational software applications, developed by the teachers in collaborations with pupils passionate in IT, increases the interest for study, develops the skills of using the computer, and facilitates the understanding of complex natural phenomena.

The project "The teacher - creator of educational software" is funded within the Sectorial Operational Program Human Resources Development 2007- 2013 and is developed by the Ministry of Education, Research, Youth and Sports, in partnership with SIVECO Romania SA, in the period of September 2009 - August 2011.
