eTwinning Professional Development: Collaborative schools development – two-day workshop in Brussels 24-25 September

Tue, Sep 8th, 2015

Many schools struggle with developing a whole-school approach to embedding the use of technology in teaching and learning. This workshop is designed for aspiring school leaders and advanced teachers to:

  • explore strategies for whole school development and improvement using technology
  • understand the main issues for mainstreaming best practice
  • identify a specific development focus at classroom level and school level
  • implement change with peer support.

Participants will be introduced to the ‘Framework for Mainstreaming Change’ and a series of ten investigations that can be undertaken by teachers within their own schools, with a strong focus on mainstreaming the use of ICT to support whole-school development.

The ‘Collaborative schools development’ concept and materials have been developed within an EC-funded Living Schools Lab project. The course is based on evidence gathered from school visits, teachers, focus groups, and experts in 12 European countries. The workshop includes two follow-up online seminars (webinars) where the progress of the schools is tracked and shared. Change doesn’t happen overnight, and therefore the participants should commit to work on the topic on a long-term basis and take an active role in the follow-up activities.
