SoE joins European ICT initiative
The School of Education is collaborating with a host of other European partners to deliver an EU funded project providing a 'Transnational Appraisal of Virtual School and College Provision'. The partners in the project are making an inventory of innovative ICT-enhanced learning initiatives and major 'e-mature' secondary and post-secondary providers for the 14-21 age group in Europe. This entails a systematic review at international and national levels including a study into operational examples of fully virtual schools and colleges. The outputs of this work will be analysed and compared to identify relevant parameters and success factors for classifying and comparing these initiatives.
The SoE contribution to the initiative is being led by Maggie McPherson.
