I am a teacher counsellor of class education in the primary school and I work with children from first to fourth grade. I am also a qualified teacher of computer science.
I have been a teacher for 25 years now, and I see now that European projects have a great value for my students, my colleagues, my school and myself. Through e-learning, Comenius (Erasmus+) projects and videoconferences our students can improve their knowledge, meet other countries and gain lots of friends from all over the world, friends who could eventually become their future business partners.
In the last six years I had many videoconferences with students from all over the world; USA, Canada, China, France, Portugal, UK and much more. Students from 1st to 8th grades are involved in the videoconferences and I am very proud of that.
I have participated in various online and face-to-face courses. I am an avid user of new technologies and one of my major goals is to teach my students how to take advantage of all the possibilities that technology-enhanced learning can offer. I strongly believe in collaboration, which is the reason why my students participate in different projects.
I am also a qualified teacher of computer science (on The Faculty of Teacher Education of the University of Zagreb). During the everyday lectures, with the intention to motivate my pupils for work, I adjust the content of my lectures using informatic technology, which children really love.
I have strong connection with Agencija za odgoj i obrazovanje (Croatian Education and Teacher Training Agency). I am also CARNet (Croatian academic and research network) associate.
I had write many articles for the Partners in Learning website (http://www.ucitelji.hr/). I am one of the editor of this website. Also I am co-author of the Forum for International Collaboration and I also write articles for the e-zine "Pogled kroz prozor". I will be able to reach a wider audience of teachers all over Croatia and share with them the knowledge I gained in this course.
And I am eTwinning ambassador! I am very proud of that!
