Instructors Applaud Games for Attracting Students' Attention, Increasing Confidence, Exercising Imaginations and Improving Performance

On Wednesday, 27 June 2018, Marco Tullner visited the premises of European Schoolnet in Brussels to learn more about our Future Classroom Lab, an inspirational learning environment challenging visitors to rethink the role of pedagogy, technology and design in the classroom.

We are delighted to share with our many followers from across the education community in Europe, the results of our work together in 2017.

European Schoolnet, the network of Ministries of Education in Europe, has launched a new study visit scheme. The scheme provides face-to-face peer learning opportunities for its members from across Europe to exchange about what works and what doesn't when it comes to new education policies.

How can teachers personalize learning in a traditional classroom and move away from the one-size-fits-all approach? How important is the learning space in this context?

Europeana DSI3 is looking for 60 teachers interested in accessing and evaluating first the Europeana scenarios, learning activities and professional development resources.

Research confirms that collaborative learning has a positive impact on students' academic achievement as well as on the development of social competences. We know however, that collaborative teaching and learning are not yet commonplace in schools across Europe.


On Friday 15 December, two representatives of the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MEST) in Kosovo (Mr. Valmir Gashi and Ms. Hanemsha Latifi) visited European Schoolnet for the first time. After various exchanges during 2017, we are delighted to announce that we close the year with MEST, Kosovo joining European Schoolnet in an observer capacity, with the hope to become a full member in the near future.

How innovative are learning spaces in your country? Do they help stimulate collaborative teaching and learning using technology? Adapting learning spaces is set to become an increasingly important issue for policy makers and school leaders, as it facilitates innovative pedagogies using technology in the classroom.


2017 has been a special year for European Schoolnet, as we have celebrated 20 years of transforming education, together with all our members and stakeholders across Europe and beyond. Having begun as a network of 18 Ministries of Education in 1997, we currently have 31 members, all united in our mission to test promising innovative practices, share evidence about their impact, and support mainstreaming effective teaching and learning practices for all students.
