On 15 June, European Schoolnet was delighted to welcome the representative of our Luxembourgish Ministry of Education member, Christian Lamy, together with school inspector Marc Bodson, a group of 20 primary school teachers, and staff members of SCRIPT (Service de Coordination de la Recherche et de l'Innovation Pédagogiques et Technologiques).

STEM Alliance publishes two new literature reviews that demonstrate how important it is that pedagogy drives technology in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education, not vice versa. Teachers, schools and education authorities are advised to carefully examine how STEM curricula can meaningfully incorporate technology.

To mark our 20th anniversary, European Schoolnet has been coordinating a series of activities to showcase the work we have achieved so far, as well as reflect on the road ahead.

Throughout Europe (and beyond!) enthusiastic teachers, parents and educators like yourself are finding ways to creatively use the Space Awareness resources in inspiring young people with space science. The Space Awareness project would like to celebrate the benefits that your hard work has achieved, and share your successes so that your peers can learn from them.

This week we feature the I-LINC blog post on the European Commission's Communication on School development and excellent teaching for a great start in life.

How can newly appointed teachers be supported through a targeted network that facilitates dialogue between them? How could a similar space support a network of mentors that develop their practice within their own community, for the benefit of the beginning teachers in their care?

The Space Awareness project has opened for registration to a new Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), titled "Our Wonderful Universe". This is the third online course produced within the Awareness project, funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 programme.

Are you interested in finding out how education systems across Europe are responding to the need for young people to be skilled in Computational Thinking?

In line with tradition, eTwinning has an annual theme that is inclusion and leads the activities for 2017

European Schoolnet is proud to announce that we are celebrating our 20th anniversary this year! Having begun as a network of 18 Ministries of Education in 1997, we currently have 31 members, all united in our mission to transform education in Europe.
