The biannual meeting of the network Future Classroom Lead Ambassadors took place on the first days of October 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal. The programme included a one-day study visit to some innovative schools outside the capital. Portugal has embraced the idea of flexible learning spaces. In the upcoming months around 100 Portuguese schools will have integrated one or more learning spaces inspired by the Future Classroom in Brussels. On this trip the FCL ambassadors joined the members of the Interactive Classroom Working Group of European Schoolnet.
