iTEC: Designing the Future Classroom iTEC: Designing the Future Classroom

In iTEC (Innovative Technologies for Engaging Classrooms, 2010-2014), European Schoolnet worked with education ministries, technology providers and research organisations to transform the way that technology is used in schools.

Over the course of the project, educational tools and resources were piloted in over 2,500 classrooms across 20 European countries, with the goal of providing a sustainable model for fundamentally redesigning teaching and learning. The project involved 26 project partners, including 14 Ministries of Education, and funding of €9.45 million from the European Commission’s FP7 programme. The project ended in August 2014.

The flipped classroom - upcoming webinar

The flipped classroom is a pedagogical model in which the lesson and homework elements of a classroom activity are reversed; pupils access their lessons remotely while at home, and then carry out their ‘homework’ in class with their teacher and classmates. The flipped classroom has already made significant inroads in the United States, but how will this model affect teaching practice in Europe?

In this webinar, taking place on Wednesday 27 February, at 12:30 CET, we'll discuss the core principles of a flipped classroom and the different ways in which it might be achieved, from a European perspective. The webinar is led by researcher Tarmo Toikkanen from Aalto University, Finland. Participants are welcome to tell about their own experiences, share tips and debate.

We invite all iTEC partners, teachers and other colleagues to take part in this webinar!

The iTEC webinars are free of charge and anyone can sign-up using the registration form. The participation link will be sent to the registered users. If you would like to join, please register here:
