Interactive Classroom Working Group
European Schoolnet working groups are set up by Ministries of Education to address a specific set of issues. The terms of reference and duration of working groups are defined by ministries themselves and their activities address policy challenges that are already visible or beginning to emerge in different countries.
The Interactive Classroom Working Group was set up at the end of 2013 and is one of three current working groups. It replaces the previous Interactive Whiteboard Working Group which was set up in 2008 in order to look at experience, policy and innovation and share good practice on the use of IWBs in Europe.
Participating ministries decided to change the name of the working group in order to reflect changes both in the technology landscape and in MoE priorities where the emphasis is increasingly on how to support the successful integration of a wide range of technologies (learning platforms, IWBs, laptops, tablets, smartphones…) both in and out of school.
The nine Ministries of Education currently involved in the Interactive Classroom Working Group include: Austria, Estonia, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Portugal, Switzerland. Ministries in the ICWG are also working closely with policy makers from regional education authorities in the FCL Regio project.
All the ICWG deliverables – videos, publications, brochures, etc. – are available at the Future Classroom Lab website.
