On March 28, 2018, a group of students from the 11th grade of the Professional High school „John Atanasov“ together with their instructor and Cisco instructor, eng. Dzana Ivanova, visited the Bulgarian Association of Networking Academies (BAMA).
They were welcomed by the Chair of BANA – Teodora Borissova, who introduced them to the training opportunities within the Cisco Networking Academy as well as to the certification and career prospects of the program graduates.
During the meeting, Teodora Borissova told them about the Erasmus project on which BAMA works „Turning lessons through multimedia enriched simulations and developing e-skills for teachers and learners in vocational education and training to increase employability among young people „Or briefly E-classes. The project is funded under the Erasmus + program, Key Activity 2, Strategic Partnership in VET, 2017-1-RO01-KA202-037344. http://e-classes.eu/
The project will develop a methodology that will form the basis for the creation of multimedia lessons in different technological disciplines. Prior to the tutorial, the learners will have access to the video material that will teach them theoretically, and during the sessions, they will have a discussion session, practical exercises, etc.
This principle is also working at the Cisco Networking Academy.
The students are in Computer Networks and Computer Technologies and participate in the Cisco Networking Technology Club. The visit was part of „Your Time“ project.
