Images, textbooks, eLearning packages, AV (…) Not just anything, but quality educational content: –What is the educational purpose of the object? –Is there a specific learning objective associated with it? –Is this learning objective documented? –aligned with a specific learning culture? –In what subject in school can it be used to teach what? –age group? specific learning need? –Metadata available (LOM?)

8 ICT PSP Infoday Luxembourg Call 2011 – 2.4 eLearning eLearning in schools – Why? Allows for better quality in Learning and teaching makes learning more interesting supports new forms of learning Can drive modernisation of education and training (digital literacy) Personalised learning –check previous mistakes, re-iterate –adapt the learning path

9 ICT PSP Infoday Luxembourg Call 2011 – 2.4 eLearning eLearning - Current barriers Global, federated eLearning repositories exist but finding the right resources (learning outcome, age) is still difficult for non-expert users Teachers, pupils and parents with specific learning needs need help Pedagogical innovation is slow Implementation is difficult and costly

10 ICT PSP Infoday Luxembourg Call 2011 – 2.4 eLearning 2.4 – What is our aim (1) Optimise the use of learning content by linking supply-side (content) with the demand-side (teachers, parents, pupils) Address both learning objects and associated pedagogy

11 ICT PSP Infoday Luxembourg Call 2011 – 2.4 eLearning 2.4 – What is our aim (2) Aim: set up and roll out a socially-powered, multilingual portal as pilot platform for teachers, pupils and parents in order to –accelerate the adoption of eLearning resources and make them widely used in national curricula –test innovative eLearning solutions and exchange Best Practices –monitor and assess impact of eLearning –generate a showcase of sufficient scale –Across borders, across languages, across different educational systems

12 ICT PSP Infoday Luxembourg Call 2011 – 2.4 eLearning A socially-powered, multilingual Portal Teachers Pupils Parents eLearning Resources eLearning Resources (critical mass) Socially-powered, multilingual Portal acquire & discuss test & improve Events, Dissemination, Best Practices Assess, measure IMPACT Test in other countries, languages, cultures Analyse situation and BARRIERS Accelerate adoption of eLearning resources Schools / Pedagogy

13 ICT PSP Infoday Luxembourg Call 2011 – 2.4 eLearning 2.4 – What projects must do Projects will have to: –allow teachers, pupils and parents to discover, discuss and improve eLearning resources in that portal –Provide access to existing repositories of eLearning resources –Target and involve schools in various EU member states and make them integrate eLearning resources in their curriculum –find ways to motivate teachers, pupils and parents to use the portal (stimulate demand)

14 ICT PSP Infoday Luxembourg Call 2011 – 2.4 eLearning What do we mean by stimulating demand? Focus more on users than on content Focus more on curricula than on technology Projects must work actively on motivating teachers, pupils and parents to use eLearning content and tools. Organise events at schools. Examine why teachers are currently not using eLearning resources and help remove obstacles Showcase that use of eLearning resources is feasible, effective and rewarding.

15 ICT PSP Infoday Luxembourg Call 2011 – 2.4 eLearning 2.4 – Conditions and Characteristics of projects (2) Conditions and characteristics 1: –The portal should enable users to identify and discuss the relevance of eLearning resources to national/regional curricula (educational goals), their expected benefits (learning needs and outcomes), their actual use, real achievements, the need for improvements –identify specific and realistic indicators to measure the response of educational systems –Provide solid analysis of the factors motivating and influencing the targeted users and content providers

21 ICT PSP Infoday Luxembourg Call 2011 – 2.4 eLearning Questions? Teachers Pupils Parents eLearning Resources eLearning Resources (critical mass) Socially-powered, multilingual Portal acquire & discuss test & improve Events, Dissemination, Best Practices Assess, measure IMPACT Test in other countries, languages, cultures Analyse situation and BARRIERS Accelerate adoption of eLearning resources Schools / Pedagogy
