Education is one of the most important matters for the contemporary age. It studies the process of teaching and of the education as a system. A Masters in Education delves deep to explore all aspects of education.

Like any developed study or science, Masters in Education programs keep up with the modern knowledge and apply every new bit of it to make the art of teaching better and more effective. Some examples of this that may be explored within a Masters in Education programs are Creative Pedagogy, Educational Philosophy and Psychology, as well as Critical Pedagogy and Concept Learning or Learning Theory. All these examples show education and pedagogy for what this study is really about – pushing the process of education to the limit of perfection, so that the subjects and methods we are supposed to use at schools and universities meet the needs of the drastically developing and changing world.

Sharing the knowledge with others, making the process of learning exciting and effective, and working on improving the current educational system – these activities are going to be yours to carry out and you will learn how with a Masters in Education.

Βασικοί Σκοποί Το Μεταπτυχιακό Πρόγραμμα στην Ειδική Εκπαίδευση στοχεύει στην παροχή γνώσεων και δεξιοτήτων, τόσο σε θεωρητικό όσο και σε πρακτικό επίπεδο, οι οποίες είναι απαραίτητες για την εκπαίδευση και υποστήριξη των μαθητών με ειδικές εκπαιδευτικές ανάγκες στα γενικά και τα ειδικά σχολεία. Στοχεύει στην παροχή γνώσεων, στην ευαισθητοποίηση, και στην εκπαίδευση πτυχιούχων Παιδαγωγικών και άλλων Πανεπιστημιακών Τμημάτων σε θέματα Ειδικής Ενταξιακής Εκπαίδευσης. Το πρόγραμμα αυτό θα παρέχει επιστημονική ενημέρωση όσον αφορά τον εντοπισμό, την αξιολόγηση αλλά και την αντιμετώπιση παιδιών με ειδικές ανάγκες μέσα στο γενικό σχολείο (γενική τάξη, ειδική μονάδα, ή εξατομικευμένη ειδική εκπαίδευση) αλλά και σε άλλους χώρους παροχής ειδικής εκπαίδευσης. Το παρόν Πρόγραμμα θα δώσει επίσης την ευκαιρία για την διεξαγωγή ερευνητικών έργων σε ένα τομέα στον οποίο δεν έχουν διεξαχθεί πολλές έρευνες μέχρι σήμερα, τουλάχιστον στον Κυπριακό χώρο. Κάθε μαθητής έχει διαφορετικά χαρακτηριστικά σε σχέση με την ψυχοσωματική του ανάπτυξη, τη γνωστική και γλωσσική του ικανότητα, την κοινωνικοποίηση και τη συναισθηματική του ανάπτυξη, στις περισσότερες περιπτώσεις οι διαφορές μεταξύ των παιδιών δεν είναι τόσο μεγάλες που θα χρειαζόταν διαφορετική προσέγγιση, σε άλλες όμως περιπτώσεις παιδιά παρουσιάζουν τέτοιες διαφορές με τα υπόλοιπα παιδιά της ίδια χρονολογικής ηλικίας που χρειάζεται ειδική εκπαιδευτική βοήθεια για να μπορέσει το παιδί να πάρει τα μέγιστα από την εκπαίδευση. Το πρόγραμμα στοχεύει στο να προετοιμάσει τον εκπαιδευτικό να εκπαιδεύσει, παιδαγωγήσει, στηρίξει, και γενικά να ενσωματώσει το παιδί στο σχολείο με συνέπεια και την καλύτερη ενσωμάτωση του στην κοινωνία. Τα μαθήματα του προγράμματος συμπεριλαμβάνουν θεωρητικά μαθήματα που ασχολούνται με γενικά, ειδικά και σύγχρονα θέματα ειδικής αγωγής και εκπαίδευσης αλλά και πιο πρακτικά μαθήματα που αφορούν στην διδακτική μεθοδολογία και στις στρατηγικές που χρησιμοποιούνται στην ειδική εκπαίδευση και την αντιρατσιστική αγωγή. Επίσης, μεταξύ άλλων, παρουσιάζεται η αναπτυξιακή πορεία σε όλους τους τομείς ανάπτυξης και οι πιθανές αποκλίσεις που μπορεί να υπάρξουν, αλλά και η συμπτωματολογία ποικίλων ειδικών αναγκών και ο τρόπος αξιολόγησης στην ειδική εκπαίδευση. Ο στόχος συνολικά είναι οι φοιτητές να αποκτήσουν ένα ευρύ και σταθερό επιστημονικό και παιδαγωγικό υπόβαθρο σε σχέση με την ενσωμάτωση συγκεκριμένων ομάδων μαθητών στις εκπαιδευτικές διαδικασίες αλλά και στην προαγωγή της ψυχοκοινωνικής του εξέλιξης. Αναμενόμενα Μαθησιακά Αποτελέσματα ή Στόχοι του Προγράμματος Με την επιτυχή συμπλήρωση του προγράμματος οι φοιτητές / - τριες αναμένεται να γνωρίζουν και να βλέπουν με κριτικό πνεύμα το σύνολο των θεμάτων που αφορούν την Ειδική Αγωγή και Εκπαίδευση.

Masters in Education. Take action to promote education The aim of this master program is to train future teachers, researchers and entrepreneurs, to provide an understanding of the digital transformations happening in education and to help them design relevant and challenging projects. Education is now globalized: teaching supports of all kinds are available at all time and everywhere. If it is stimulated by digital economy, education must also compete with it. Schools are urged by society to encourage students’ creativity and eagerness to learn, to inspire them to undertake and share, to develop their lucidity, critical thinking and sense of solidarity. But this goals can’t easily be reached, in a context of social crises, growing inequalities and demographic needs. It is a challenge we are ready to take-up: education is in need for new entrepreneurs, teachers and researchers, and ideally, people with these three characteristics all at once. We are looking for talented students with a particular interest for exploration, experimentation and research. Our candidates must have the desire to work together on exciting collaborative projects and to contribute now to tomorrow’s education. Foster digital people The EdTech program is part of the AIRE master of the universities Paris Descartes and Paris Diderot. It develops an innovative approach of education and a teaching through research pedagogy. Career opportunities A business/job in a startup or an institution At the exit of the master, graduates Become instructional designers, editorial managers or project managers in startups and publishers Create an educational company in Europe, Africa, America or Asia … Take a teaching assignment Begin a thesis and join a laboratory. Publics At the entrance of the Master, students are Sociology students in educational sciences, biology, cognitive science, design, computer science, engineering sciences, Practicing faculty physicians involved in educational innovation. All are passionate about education and believe that its future is crucial for the future. For some students, it is a step aside for a project. This is the case of doctors who want to take time to imagine a serious game, design a simulator to train surgeons, embarking on a participatory science research, manufacture objects connected in a OpenLab for their research. . This is the case of teachers who seek a breath for a job they love and want to re-imagine. For others it is the beginning of a research curriculum that requires knowledge about learning in a digital society and that will combine several disciplines, computer science, cognitive science, physics, biology, humanities and social. For others still, designers, artists, hackers is a creative field, for sustainable development, sharing economy, the development of “common” knowledge. All meet, to discuss the tech ed (Education and technology) with 3 fields of expertise: The educational philosophy and anthropology of knowledge, digital humanities, social sciences Digital techniques, experimentation Entrepreneurship, project management,brainFoster Cadre The CRI makes available to large communities of teachers and researchers its wide experience in training through research, experience heavily supported on digital technologies used creatively. Many training activities have made it possible to capitalize on active steps the research of information, inverted class, student projects, serious games, practice in laboratory. Master 1 The first year will begin with three weeks of bootcamp aiming to give the students the basics in different computer languages and the use of technology for education purposes. The first semester will give the opportunity to every student to pick 5 courses among our curriculum but we advise the students to attend all of them. Students will do a 5 months internship for their second semester. They will be asked to come back once a week to attend lectures on cognitive science and various matters related to innovation and education. Serious games Learning by doing Scientific communication New technologies to create and share knowledge Pedagogical innovation: what is at stake? How does it happen? Open Science and Open Innovation Cognitive science Internship of 5 months Master 2 The second year will mostly be spent in internships. After an introducing week of project building, the students will have to do three internships of three months each. Workshops and lectures will happen one afternoon every week to deal with innovation analyse and design of educational project. Review and critical analysis of pedagogical innovations Internships 3x 3 months [-]
