Mobile TV studios, video, archiving and live streaming equipment from Yorkshire firm Planet PC will be among the first to feature in a European ‘classroom of the future’.
The ‘Future Classroom Lab’ initiative in Brussels is run by European Schoolnet, an international partnership of more than 30 European Ministries of Education developing learning for schools, teachers and pupils.
The lab will be set up at the end of 2011 to showcase teaching and learning scenarios for classrooms of the future throughout Europe. The flagship four-year project, which has received €9.45 million of funding from the European Commission’s FP7 research programme, is part of the Europe-wide Innovative Technologies for an Engaging Classroom (iTEC) project.
The project involves 15 of the European Ministries of Education and will include trials and validation of future classroom technology scenarios in 1000 classrooms.
