European Schoolnet Transforming education in Europe
ABOUT US European Schoolnet is the network of 30 European Ministries of Education, based in Brussels. As a not-for-profit organisation, we aim to bring innovation in teaching and learning to: Ministries of Education, schools, teachers, researchers and industry partners. European Schoolnet pledges to: Support schools in achieving effective use of ICT in teaching and learning Improve and raise the quality of education in Europe Promote the European dimension in education Through our activities, we aim to transform teaching and learning processes, using the integration of ICT as a force for improvement. Connect with us: www.europeanschoolnet.org
“Technology alone does not transform teaching practices. Any transformation process has to be the result of a strategy and a vision where the heads of school will assert their key role alongside the teaching community as the driving force for change.”
