FCL for policy makers

EUN members

Senior policy makers from European Schoolnet’s supporting 30 Ministries of Education are already benefitting from seminars, workshops and conferences that focus on how ICT can potentially impact on teaching and learning. The new Future Classroom Lab will allow European Schoolnet to extend these activities, including to policy makers in regional and municipal educational authorities.

As well as providing a space where policy makers can rethink their ICT strategies, the Future Classroom Lab provides teachers, head teachers and ICT advisers with training and continuing professional development opportunities.

Within the FCL, practitioners will to learn how to implement future classroom designs and be provided with in-depth courses on a range of topics related to the effective use of ICT in schools.

If you would like to know more about how your region and schools can participate in the Future Classroom Lab, please contact:

FCL for teachers

Teachers, head teachers and ICT advisers will be directly involved in helping policy makers and industry partners to rethink teaching and learning within the Future Classroom Lab. Initially these practitioners will be brought together by Ministries of Education that are working with schools in a variety of European Schoolnet projects and pan-European pilots.

However, the Future Classroom Lab is also developing a programme of workshops, seminars and courses that will be open to teachers, head teachers, ICT advisers and other stakeholders.

FCL for ICT providers

Over 20 industry partners are already supporting the Future Classroom Lab. The FCL enables companies to showcase their own ideas for new learning spaces and how their technology can support innovative pedagogical approaches to C21st teaching and learning.

Each industry partner supporting the Future Classroom Lab will:

  • Have their technology included in the Lab and used to demonstrate future classroom scenarios within workshops and training sessions organised by European Schoolnet for policy makers, teachers, head teachers, ICT advisers and other stakeholders.
  • Be able to use the Future Classroom Lab logo and have high visibility of each partner’s logo in the Future Classroom Lab marketing materials; company and product literature will also be available to all delegates attending FCL events.
  • Discounts on membership of relevant European Schoolnet Working Groups (e.g. Interactive Whiteboard Working Group).
  • The ability to run company specific events in the Future Classroom Lab up to four times a year.
  • Invitations to participate in new European Schoolnet projects.
  • Four places each year at the European Schoolnet EMINENT conference.
  • The opportunity to present an eLearning Award at a major teacher event organised by European Schoolnet.

In line with European Schoolnet’s code of practice for industry partnerships, all ICT vendors will be treated equally and in a transparent manner. Each company will be asked to make a financial contribution toward the operational costs of the Future Classroom Lab and to commit to a two-year agreement with European Schoolnet under which they will be expected to provide and regularly refresh all necessary equipment (hardware, software …) at their own expense.
