Starting in September 2019, Association Redefine will start implementing another challenging project aiming at supporting the renewal of school education. The project Digital Schools for Enhanced Learning Achievements was approved for funding by the French National Agency of Education and Training and joins together partners from France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Turkey and Austria. The initiative, which will be coordinated by La Ligue de l’Enseignement du Haut-Rhin aims at addressing the recomandations of the European framework for Digitally competent Educational Organisations, specifically the existing gap between EU recommendations and the delay of implementation of the latter in schools.
While ICT offers numerous opportunities for innovation in schools, data has demonstrated that it doesn’t guarantee it. Both recent EU research and school staff and teachers have consistently pointed to the main challenges that schools face in the efficient use of technology in both management and education.
The new initiative will help our pilot schools overcome major obstacles such as outdated learning management systems, insufficient use of digital tools in the teaching and learning process, validation and recognition of learning outcomes, as well as the need for imporoving teachers’ and school staff digital skills.
With the support of the Erasmus+ programme will be able to provide modern, up-to-date digital learning management system to at least 6 European schools and provide training to at least 60 school teachers and administrators in ICT and digital learning technology.
The project is funded by the Erasmus + programme, Action KA2 ‘Strategic partnerships for innovation in the field of school education’. The proposal has been developed by Association Redefine team and is part of our consistent effort to support local and European partners in the implementation of innovative practices. The consortium is lead by La Ligue de l’Enseignement du Haut-Rhin, France and includes partners from Portugal, Spain, Italy, Turkey and Austria.
