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.
Improving teaching and learning, especially through harnessing the benefits of the pedagogical use of technology, has always been at the heart of what we do. Our daily work consists of supporting Ministries of Education, schools, teachers and relevant education stakeholders in Europe in the transformation of education processes for 21st century digitalized societies.
How do we do this in practice? We identify and test promising innovative practices, share evidence about their impact, and support mainstreaming teaching and learning practices aligned with 21st century standards and expectations for the education of all students.
To mark this celebratory occasion we have launched a series of activities to showcase the work we have achieved so far, as well as reflect on the road ahead. Look out for our monthly 20th anniversary video series and our weekly testimonials on social media. From teachers, researchers, Ministries of Education, educational ogranisations, industry and more, hear what they have to say by following #eu_schoolnet20 on Twitter and Facebook. Reflecting the multilingual and multicultural dimension of our work, our weekly testimonials are published in their original language as well as in English.
We also have some exciting anniversary outputs and activities for you to enjoy and get involved in! Check out our side menu for all activities and outputs, which is constantly updated with new materials, so be sure to stay tuned.
