Over 200 cloud services
Activating over 200 cloud services for schools, kindergartens, universities and NGOs
The international “Science Camp” program, taking place in Bulgaria, designed and organised by CCT, which brings together young people with scientists for 5 days of workshops and science activities.
Center for Creative Training is the author of 16 teacher training programs
The training programs aimed at the meaningful integration of and holistic approach to technology in the classroom. Among the most frequented training programs are “School in the cloud”, “Design and implementation of ICT”, and “Instruments for attractive education”. All training programs are approved by the Bulgarian Ministry of Education and have an ISO Certificate of Excellence.
CCT’s position is that the purchase of new technology and teacher trainings are by themselves insufficient to bring about educational transformation. What is needed is a holistic approach combining the meaningful implementation of technology, innovative learning environment design, and strategic planning. Educational transformation has to have a clear objective, in sync with the demands of today, attuned to the future.
