The Future Classroom Lab in is a fully equipped, reconfigurable, teaching and learning space developed by European Schoolnet, its 30 supporting Ministries of Education and leading educational technology providers.
It has been designed as a "Living Lab' for how ICT can be implemented in schools and where policy makers, ICT suppliers, teachers and educational researchers can come together to:
• Rethink how new technologies can support the educational reform process at both national and European level.
• Engage in regular workshops, seminars and courses on how existing and emerging technologies can have a transformative effect on teaching and learning processes.
• Develop new economic models in order that teaching and learning activities designed for the future classroom can be mainstreamed and taken to scale.
iTEC (Innovative Technologies for an Engaging Classroom) is a four year, large-scale project starting in September 2010. iTEC will design, build and comprehensively test scalable learning and teaching scenarios for the future classroom.
