A new publication available: Bring Your Own Device - A guide for school leaders

 

"BYOD Bring Your Own Device - A guide for school leaders" is a new publication by the European Schoolnet's Interactive Classroom Working Group (ICWG).

The guide is designed to provide school leaders, local education authorities and other decision makers with information about current Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trends, options and examples from schools in Europe as well as relevant lessons from BYOD implementations in schools in other parts of the world.

While the primary aim is to inform school ICT strategy development and support decision making, the findings on good practice and case studies will also be of interest to many teachers who are interested in exploring the potential of BYOD on a smaller scale.

Innovative and interactive classroom: new videos published

 

Seven new videos showcasing innovative pedagogical practice in European classrooms have been published. The videos have been created by the Interactive Classroom Working Group that launched the classroom practice series last year with four videos.

The new videos take us to classrooms in seven different countries to see and explore how interactive technology is used to support engaging teaching and learning:

 

 

The videos – previously published and the latest ones – are available in the European Schoolnet's Youtube channel and in the new FCL Directory that is created to help teachers to find innovative teaching examples and resources for their lessons.

The Interactive Classroom Working Group involves nine Ministries of Education: Austria, Estonia, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Norway, Portugal, and Switzerland. The working group is looking into ways to support the successful integration of a wide range of technologies, such as learning platforms, interactive whiteboards, laptops, tablets, or smartphones, both in and out of school.

The working group will publish in July 2015 a guide on ‘Bring Your Own Device' strategies for schools.

 

mEducation is schools seminar

The Interactive Classroom Working Group is working with the GSMA, which represents the interests of nearly 800 of the world’s mobile operators, to organise a strategic seminar for policy makers on the 9 April 2014 in Brussels.

The seminar will explore how innovative pedagogical practice can be supported by mobile technologies. A number of mobile operators that are GSMA members will report on the results of mEducation school pilots that they have been running in a number of countries and there will be an opportunity to hear from some of the teachers who have been involved in these pilots. The event will also look at how mobile devices are starting to impact on BYOD strategies and the development of learning cloud computing services for schools.

This event is part of a series of seminars for policy makers that are being under the umbrella of the European Schoolnet Future Classroom Lab.
