New project launched - Creative Classrooms Lab

Creative Classrooms LabHow to invest most efficiently in national 1:1 computing programmes? What advice to give to schools that are integrating tablets into their teaching and learning? The new two-year Creative Classrooms Lab project creates pan-European policy experimentations with tablets to give insight into these questions and many more.

The project will carry out a series of policy experimentations to collect evidence on the implementation, impact and up-scaling of 1:1 pedagogical approaches using tablets. This evidence will enable policy makers to take more informed decisions. Lessons drawn from the policy experimentations will also:

  • Provide guidelines, examples of good practice and a training course for schools wishing to include tablets as part of their ICT strategy.
  • Support capacity building within Ministries of Education and regional educational authorities and encourage them to introduce changes in their education systems.
  • Enable policy makers to foster large-scale uptake of the innovative practice that is observed during the project.

The project is coordinated by European Schoolnet, a unique network of 30 Ministries of Education in Europe and funded by the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme. Nine Ministries of Education or organisations nominated to act on their behalf are project partners: Austria, Belgium (Flanders), Belgium (Wallonia), Czech Republic, Italy, Lithuania, Portugal, Slovenia and the United Kingdom. The observation and documentation of innovative practice in participating schools is led by the University of Wolverhampton from the UK.
