2012-10-01 | 7th plenary meeting of the EU project NEXT-TELL from 26th to 28th September 2012 at the KMRC
This time the meeting was joined by members of the advisory board as well as by internationally selected principals and teachers to discuss about project ideas, developments and possibilities for knowledge communication.
Formative assessment, immersive learning environments, documenting and visualising learning data (see also OPCO12 „Learning Analytics“), teachers’ inquiriy, and strategic planning of ICT (information and communication technology) in education were discussed by the international partners of the project but also by the project’s advisory board members as well as principals and teachers.
NEXT-TELL based workshops as well as the current NEXT-TELL tool versions were offered to the principals and teachers from Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands, England, and Germany. They were asked for their feedback for further development. Currently, the NEXT-TELL tools seem to increase efforts in the time limited school systems and therefore need further adaptation.
The goal to communicate and exchange experiences was very welcomed by the international school partners. They reported from their daily teaching and leading organization within their schools. The experiences ranged from sketches of the computer labs to reports of first steps in inquiring a teacher’s own testing ideas.
