The Interactive Classroom Working Group (ICWG) set up in 2013 is one of four current European Schoolnet working groups. The aim of the Interactive Classroom Working Group is to enable Ministries of Education to explore common areas of concern, share experience, and address policy challenges related to the integration of a wide range of technologies in classroom and their impact on teaching and learning.
It explores every year different topics such as the pedagogical use of mobile devices and K-12 cloud services, Personalized learning, Bring your own device (BYOD) or Designing learning spaces.
The latest topic is Makerspaces, especially those which are located within schools. In 2019 the group investigated how they link to pedagogy, the curriculum, cross-curricular projects or specific subjects, STEM education, and skills development.
