Schools chose right tools for online learning, eduIT confirms

Given the new situation regarding the coronavirus pandemic, and the need to adapt the everyday life and thus the education system, we asked our partners about the situation in their countries. Our Gen-D partner from Bosnia and Herzegovina has sent us a video reporting on how the educational system in their country responded to this pandemic.

Our partner from Bosnia and Herzegovina, eduIT – Udruženje nastavnika i profesora informatike gave us an insight into what the educational system is doing in order to adapt to the new ways of teaching at home. All of the educational institutions have adopted online classrooms using Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Teams online tools. They have recognized the need for enhancing their teachers’ digital competencies, which is why numerous training webinars have been organized for these purposes.
