SMILE - Social Media in Learning and Education

SMILE aimed to improve our understanding of the challenges and opportunities associated with how kids are growing up in a world of social media and technology.

The project, funded by an inaugural Digital Citizenship Research Grant from Facebook, consisted of three key phases:

• An online learning laboratory for 100 teachers from the 30 member states of EUN's partnerships (and beyond) to investigate and embrace the educational opportunities social media offers;
• Research with the learning laboratory participants to highlight trends and best practices for how social media is being used and can be used in classrooms;
• Broad dissemination of the research results through EUN's interactive portals for teachers, as well as through European and international meetings and conferences.
