Recommendations and guidelines for policy makers

Mobile learning & cloud services - Beyond the text book. Recommendations and guidelines for policy makers

During its first year, the FCL Regio project has particularly focused on several key questions. What is mobile learning? What are cloud services for schools? How can they support a ‘beyond the textbook' strategy? What are the potential benefits of introducing these technologies in the classroom? These and other questions led the discussions at the first Strategic Seminar, informed an online questionnaire dedicated to local policy makers, as well as inspired face-to-face consultations with national and regional decision makers. The resulting main findings and seven key recommendations for regional policy makers, are summarised in the following publication: Mobile learning & cloud services - Beyond the text book. Recommendations and guidelines for policy makers.

 

Mobile learning & cloud services - Beyond the text book. Guidelines for school leaders

Based on the previous publication and in compliance with its goals about empowering the decision makers in regions and showcasing innovative classroom practices, the Future Classroom Lab Regional network has developed practical suggestions that can serve as guidelines for school leaders. These seven guidelines are aiming at encouraging school leaders on the path of moving beyond the textbook and taking advantage of the mobile and cloud learning.

During the second year of the FCL Regio project, it has been considered important to focus on initial teacher education and continuing professional development of teachers. The FCL Regio project has purticularly focused on the following questions: What are the frameworks and standards that should be used to describe and structure teachers' digital competences in order to make effective use of ICT in the classroom? Which are the most effective methods for training teachers and how should these be implemented by regional public authorities? What practical roadblocks or opportunities should be taken into consideration to guarantee the smooth deployment of training programmes for teachers? Download the full publication here.

 

Guidelines for school leaders: Mobile learning and cloud services - teacher induction and continuing professional development

During the second year of the FCL Regio project, it has been considered of outmost importance that in-service teacher training and newly qualified teacher induction programmes would be key elements, not only to reflect about, but also to be addressed immediately by school leaders and policy makers. Besides this, other elements, such as finding more innovative ways of integrating ICT in the classroom, using cloud services or implementing innovative techniques and methodologies that can help teachers to more efficiently use digital technologies in the classroom, should be considered. To this end and based on the recommendations for policy makers who are attempting to develop and implement ICT strategies for schools, the project has developed a list of suggestions that school leaders can use as guidelines in their own context.
