New technologies – we’d like to hear your views!
European Schoolnet is currently working closely with key names in the mobile and internet industry to create an online information centre to guide teachers through the multiple opportunities and challenges that the virtual world brings. A core element of the centre will be the availability of free downloadable curriculum materials covering the latest technologies.
We invite you to bring your own expertise to the project by completing our specially developed survey at http://www.zoomerang.com/recipient/survey-intro.zgi?p=WEB2276G855RUN.
Ever wished you knew more about Web 2.0, what’s new in the world of mobiles, or where these two worlds come together? Social networking services, user generated content and access to these services via mobile phones are becoming an integral part of life for many young people. For teachers, keeping up with the challenges of today’s fast-moving world of technology is a time-consuming task – finding suitable materials to deal with these issues in the curriculum is even more difficult. Fully aware of this, and with a commitment to work with teachers to help them get the best out of technology, a recently set-up European pan-industry consortium is planning to launch an innovative website in April, and follow up the launch with actions based on your recommendations.
This is a European education initiative brought to you by AOL, Bebo, Buongiorno, Facebook, Google, GSM Europe, Microsoft, MySpace, Orange, Telefonica O2, Telecom Italia, T-Mobile, Vodafone, Yahoo in partnership with European Schoolnet.
