The Centre for the innovation and development of education and technology (from now on CIDET) is a training and consultancy consortium focused on adult learning and educational technology. CIDET is set in the city of Castellón (Spain) but works with cooperation with partners throughout the whole country and abroad.
Our main area of expertise is the use of technology on education from two perspectives:
- the technology as a subject and teaching content not only for adult learners, but also for multipliers (experts, trainers, teachers, facilitators, managers)
- the technology as a tool and methodology for: learning other subjects and attitudes (as languages, health, culture, tolerance, entrepreneurship…) in other contexts (in classrooms, self-learning, volunteers, in rural areas…), needs (senior citizens, people in risk of exclusion, disabled, immigrants,….) and models (non-formal, informal, collaborative, intergenerational, serious games,…)
As a consultancy and guidance consortium, the main strengths of CIDET are the expertise and knowledge that could be applied for develop and create learning environments, research and innovation of specific and tailored-made pedagogical approaches, the quality assessment, improvement of already existing learning programmes, offer of training courses and design and finally the implementation other activities and materials that can be useful for dissemination and exploitation of the results.
