European Schoolnet launches community of practice called inGenious
Friday, 23 March 2012
inGenious, a FP7 project coordinated by the European Schoolnet has recently launched its first community of practice. The aim of the Technology Community is to a) share ideas and information about the use of technology in education, b) inspire teachers to explore new ways of teaching with technology and c) raise questions and seek answers about technology and education. Teachers have a chance to share ideas or raise questions in a debate guided by the inGenious experts.
The topic of discussion will move each week through various aspects of the community subject. The conclusions of the debates will be presented to the project’s high-level stakeholders and circulated throughout the inGenious partners. Nine Communities of Practice will be held in total.
The FP7 inGenious project aims to reinforce links between science education and technology careers in the private sector by strengthening the industry-education partnership. It includes a network of over 1,000 primary and secondary schools (with a leading pilot network of 150 schools) which will validate the best practices and organise seminars for teachers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects.
