European Schoolnet (EUN Partnership)
Rue de Trèves 61, Brussels, Belgium
European Schoolnet is the network of 34 European Ministries of Education, based in Brussels. As a not-for-profit organisation, we aim to bring innovation in teaching and learning to our key stakeholders: Ministries of Education, schools, teachers, researchers, and industry partners.
Since its founding in 1997, European Schoolnet has used its links with education ministries to help schools become effective in the pedagogical use of technology, equipping both teachers and pupils with the necessary skills to achieve in the digital society.
In 2012 European Schoolnet opened in Brussels a unique and inspirational learning environment called the Future Classroom Lab (FCL). Since then, the Future Classroom Lab has been challenging visitors to rethink the role of pedagogy, technology and design in their classrooms. Numerous training course, workshops and seminars, as well as other events take place in the Future Classroom Lab annually. Thousands of teachers have already been inspired by the FCL training events.
The FCL courses in a nutshell:
• European dimension: the participants will always benefit from an international and interactive course environment. All courses include at least 15 participants from at least four countries to allow networking, exchange and sharing among like-minded teachers from across Europe.
• Teacher collaboration: as part of all 5-day courses the participants are introduced to eTwinning, the European largest teacher community by the European Commission. Participants learn also about other relevant EUN initiatives and projects that offer e.g. CPD opportunities.
• Innovative environment: Future Classroom Lab invites the participants to rethink their teaching practice and learning spaces at their own school. In addition to the FCL, EUN has a meeting room capacity to host even bigger groups conveniently.
• Certification: all participants receive a certificate of attendance and also a Europass Mobility if they request for it.
