The Future Classroom Lab in Brussels is a fully equipped, reconfigurable, teaching and learning space developed by European Schoolnet, its 30 supporting Ministries of Education and leading educational technology providers.

It has been designed as a “Living Lab’ for how ICT can be implemented in schools and where policy makers, ICT suppliers, teachers and educational researchers can come together to:

  • Rethink how new technologies can support the educational reform process at both national and European level.
  • Engage in regular workshops, seminars and courses on how existing and emerging technologies can have a transformative effect on teaching and learning processes.
  • Develop new economic models in order that teaching and learning activities designed for the future classroom can be mainstreamed and taken to scale.

Media & Learning Conference participants can take part in a pre-conference event at the Future Classroom Lab on 13 November 2012, at 14-17:00 CET. During the event participants will be introduced to the different learning zones, technology and pedagogical activities the Lab offers.
