How to run school validations across Europe – Workshop invitation

Living Schools Lab workshop


Running pan-European school pilots where teachers and pupils evaluate new technologies can be both extremely challenging and expensive. European Schoolnet has carried out various validation pilots of different sizes with schools from across Europe, and one of its projects, Living Schools Lab, is currently developing a validation methodology and service that will be available in autumn 2014.

In the following video, Jouni Paakkinen from the Centre for ICT in Learning (Turku, Finland) explains how validations are carried out in schools at the Turku region.



In connection with this work, Living Schools Lab is organising on 5 June a free workshop that will enable research projects, ICT suppliers and other interested organisations to understand how European Schoolnet runs both large-scale and small scale school validations with its 30 supporting Ministries of Education.
The workshop will explain:
  • The results you can expect from using different types of evaluation methodologies and instruments.
  • How to motivate teachers to participate in your own school pilots.
  • The successful operational guidelines that European Schoolnet uses in pan-European school pilots, some of which involve over 2,000 classes.
  • How to design your own validation with schools and teachers in different countries.
  • How your project or company can use a new turnkey action research service involving schools in the Living Schools Lab network.
