EUCIS -LLL debate: Digital wave:supporting a cultural shift in learning systems?


EUCIS-LLL is delighted to invite you to join us to this policy debate that will take stock of the latest European policy developments i the field of new technologies and lifelong learning, and deepen the reflection on the direction to take in 2014 onwards. The 2013 Commission Communication on “Opening Up Education” as well as the recent actions undertaken in the framework of the Digital Agenda will notably be discussed, as well as several key questions: will new technologies really support a cultural shift in the way we teach and learn in Europe? How to make sure more accessible learning opportunities and quality standards go hand in hand? To prepare the debate, we also invite you to consult EUCIS-LLL position paper on the topic and our Manifesto for the European elections, in which pedagogic innovation through new learning solutions is the first priority. See our event webpage and register before 24 February !
