Technology-Enhanced Learning has been developing in the last years but has not achieved the relevance level which is needed to transform educational systems. Why? This is the main question this Online Educa Pre-conference workshop will answer to.
The Workshop, organised by the HOTEL project with the support of the European Union’s FP7, will gather some of the most important Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) support and foresight initiatives of recent years, with the aims of reflecting on the issue of TEL research relevance.
The discussion will tackle the fact that TEL research, despite its recognised level of excellence and the strong efforts that funding agencies – especially the European Commission – are deploying, does not seem able so far to reach the relevance level which is needed to transform educational systems.
The event is open to Policy Makers at different levels, TEL Industry representatives, Teachers and researchers in higher education, Educational Practiitioners, Media, Educational providers, and anyone interested in Technology-enhanced Learning.
