□ The Ministry of Education (Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education Yoo Eun-hae) will open a two-way online knowledge sharing platform called "Knowledge Spring" in October so that teachers can freely share their educational technology (Edutech) capabilities through "real-time virtual classes."
ㅇ “Knowledge Spring” is an autonomous and personalized non-face-to-face teacher training system. Teachers and instructors can flexibly organize and operate teaching materials, content and training time which differs from the existing institutional-led training models.
ㅇ In particular, it is expected to have high participation and utilization rate of on-site teachers by conducting real-time training on education technology (Edutech) which will allow teachers to be prepared for online-based programs (platforms), utilization of Authority Tools* and educational materials for remote classes.
* Authority Tools: Software used for creating digital content by organizing various forms of data, such as text, graphics, voice data and digital image data, into one multimedia content (Source: IT Glossary)
