Created by European Schoolnet, the Future Classroom Lab (FCL) is an inspirational, fully equipped, reconfigurable, teaching and learning environment in Brussels, challenging visitors to rethink the role of pedagogy, technology and design in their classrooms. In the Future Classroom Lab, visitors can explore:

  • The competences and roles for students' and teachers'  21st century teaching and learning.
  • Different learning styles and more personalised, active learning.
  • Learning environment design and how it can impact student engagement and classroom interaction.
  • Current and emerging technology to support all of the above and societal trends affecting education.

Since the opening of the Future Classroom Lab in January 2012, European Schoolnet and its 34 supporting Ministries of Education have worked closely with a growing number of ICT providers to ensure an independently funded and sustainable platform. Policy-makers, industry partners, teachers and other education stakeholders regularly come together in face-to-face training workshops and strategic seminars to develop visions for the school of the future and strategies on how to realise these.
