|EuroMET philosophy: The objective of EuroMET
is to provide teachers with resources to create learning applications in
Meteorology. They include libraries of existing material, guidance and
helpful tools for creating your own modules and an organiser to combine
everything coherently. All the modules provided in our libraries have
been developed with up-to-date information provided by established
experts from across Europe. The modules have been extensively evaluated
and refined as a result of this feedback.
How to use this guide: It is up to you to
decide what information you need from this guide. Perhaps you want to
know more about different ways in which people learn (pedagogical
background) or ways in which computer-based material can be used in
different teaching scenarios. If you are already familiar with these
topics you might want to use our existing modules to create your own
learning application or create some of your module which you can
integrate with ours. The discussion area is provided for you to ask
questions and also to see the questions others have already asked.
Answers to these questions come from people who have already used our
|Pedagogical background: How
do people learn? What are the different levels of understanding? How do
the teaching methods affect the understanding? How can we evaluate the effectiveness?
||Different teaching scenarios: Classroom
demonstrations; Computer-based practicals; Learning in the workplace;
Learning at home. What if there are problems?
|Constructing applications from existing
module libraries: Exploring the module libraries; Selecting modules
and building your own contents page; Local v remote delivery
||Creating and integrating your own modules:
Style guide; User interface; Java applet library
