The annual School Innovation Forum will be held from 9 to 10 June in Brussels (but also online). This is the initiative that European Schoolnet organizes with the aim of bringing together the key actors of the European educational community, and to pave the way for new collaborations linked to the future of teaching, also in light of what we experienced in the period of the health emergency.
This year’s edition, Rethinking school innovation for future-proof learning, includes a first day in which experts from the world of major European educational institutions and top-level companies will discuss topics ranging from general rethinking of education in the post-Covid era (with Tracey Burns of the OECD) to the integration of technologies in the classroom (with Beth Havinga of the European EdTech Alliance).
INDIRE will be present with its research director, Elisabetta Mughini, who will speak on Thursday 9 at 3.30 pm in the round table on the future of school and teaching (Schools and teaching in 2032: How can we continue supporting innovation in education in the next decade) together with Maria João Horta from the Portuguese Directorate-General for Education and Lilia Parfitt from LEGO Education.
In the second round table, A critical discussion on how the EdTech sector can better support education in the post-covid world, the experts, Georgi Dimitrov, of the European Commission and Martin Sønderlev Christensen of Copenhagen University College will discuss the role played by technologies in the last two years of the pandemic and the perspectives of an education increasingly closely connected to the use of digital tools (5:20 pm).
On the second day, the participants, in small groups, will be engaged in tables where experiences and good practices will be shared, also with the aim of creating bi- and multilateral collaborations to enrich the work that EUN has already been carrying out for some time on a series of specific topics: innovative teaching models, environmental sustainability, relationship between school and work, diffusion of computational thinking, role of scientific education, new learning environments, collaboration between the public and private sector.
The meeting in Brussels will also be an opportunity for the educational community to reaffirm and strengthen its commitment to support the Future Classroom Lab, the project initiated by EUN which aims to redefine school spaces from a conceptual and operational point of view, on the basis of the opportunities that information and communication technologies make available to society today.
The works of the first day can be followed in live streaming after online registration.
