Sofia, 13 November 2017 – Bulgarian Science Course for Teachers is free of charge and was created by the magazine’s team as a result of the numerous educators’ inquiries from across the country how the media could ease their work. At the same time, it aims to shorten the distance between science and students by illustrating how teachers can enrich pupils’ practical knowledge with more than 5.000 materials from different scientific fields and thus engage them actively in the learning process.

The course is suitable for all secondary school educators who would like to immerse in the world of online teaching and are looking to expand their digital skills. It comprises 11 modules that encapsulate practical information on various topics, including:

  • How teachers can use 30 GB on Bulgarian Science platform for free in order to ease their work by using a personal Gmail account at TheirName@nauka.bg;
  • Comprehensive explanation of Google Drive benefits and its practical application in a real school environment;
  • Online tasks and homework to drive pupils’ digital knowledge and higher engagement rate;
  • Usefulness of social media in the learning process with focus on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube;
  • Additional ideas for engaging students online.

‘Bulgarian teachers are extremely busy and we cannot possibly expect that they have spare time and follow the latest e-education trends, too. On the other hand, reading articles on the web and watching YouTube videos is not enough to get to know the topic in depth. This is the reason why we decided to make their work easier by summing up information which they can access at any time and put into practice straight away’, said Petar Teodosiev, founder of Bulgarian Science magazine.
