ABC Learning Design is a high-energy, hands-on curriculum development workshop developed at University College London. In just 90 minutes teaching teams work together to create a visual ‘storyboard’. The storyboard is made up of pre-printed cards representing the type and sequence of learning activities (both online and offline) required to meet the module or programme learning outcomes.

Although originally designed for higher education, the ABC Learning Design methodology can be easily adapted to secondary, primary and kindergarten levels.
It builds on the six learning types concept from Prof Diana Laurillard’s model of how students learn (Conversational Framework: D. Laurillard, Teaching as a design science : building pedagogical patterns or learning and technology, Routledge, 2012).
This is a model of the conditions necessary for learning to take place. Laurillard argues that learning requires cycles of communication to take place between teachers and learners, and learners and their peers, and that these are promoted by the combination of the six learning types.

With this course, you will update your uses of digital technologies in education.
You start by determining your level with a self-assessment tool based on the European Digital Competence Framework for Educators (DigCompEdu). Then you get an overview of DigCompEdu and how educators can develop their digital competence.
The chapter "Facilitating learners' digital competence" is detailed, topic by topic.
A conference and an article by Francesca Caena are also proposed, as well as some digital tools.
The SAMR model, developed by Ruben Puentedura, is a very important theoretical reference for educators who wish to reflect on the effective and truly pedagogical integration of technologies in the classroom.
The SAMR model offers a method to better understand how technology can have a real impact on teaching and learning. Thus, it helps the teacher to understand that integrating ICT does not mean using technology at all costs, but engaging the student in his learning. Technology therefore becomes a tool to achieve this goal.
Digital is not so complicated! This video is the opportunity to discover how to use digital tools to enrich reading by simply starting from a children's books and a tablet.
