Highlights

Workshop on "Innovative Schools -Teaching & Learning in the Digital Era" 4.5.2015 pm

28-04-2015 - 13:59
Workshop 4.5.2015

Today's young Europeans are the first generation to have come of age in a digital society. Computers, smartphones and global communications have shaped and educated them. And yet, there is great disparity in our schools and education systems. In fact, many schools struggle to provide the basics despite the dedicated efforts of teachers and families. 

Besides, the social dimension is many times "divorced" from the main objectives guiding the developments in ICT, leading to a lack of equal access to technology and knowledge putting communities and populations of students at a disadvantage,especially minorities and sparsely-populated areas.

This workshop will look into the potential technology holds to transform education, overcome geographic disparities, improve access, personalise learning and make information widely available in digital form.

The hearing will focus on large sporting events and their links to human rights issues. The recently adopted pledges on the obligations of host governments by the International Olympic Committee under the "Olympic Agenda 2020" will also provide an excellent basis for discussions with key stakeholders such as sports federations, sponsors and organising committees.
