European Parliament CULT Committee “Innovative Schools -Teaching & Learning in the Digital Era”
Today’s young Europeans are the first generation to have come of age in a digital society. Computers, smartphones and global communications have shaped and educated them. And yet, there is great disparity in our schools and education systems, many schools struggling to provide the basics despite the dedicated efforts of teachers and families. What’s more, the social dimension is many times “divorced” from the main objectives guiding the developments in ICT, leading to a lack of equal access to technology and knowledge putting communities and populations of students at a disadvantage. This workshop looked into the potential technology holds to transform education, overcome geographic disparities, improve access, personalise learning and make information widely available in digital form. EUCIS-LLL will also debate on this issue in a workshop during its annual conference.
