The Up2DigiSchool project aims at improving the current situation in digital education in Europe. It focuses on school education for students from 13 years old, i.e. education in secondary or vocational schools in most countries.
The Up2DigiSchool is based on the experience of the Up2U. Thus, involving the networks of high schools already activated during the Up2U project, and extending the community with new schools, partners will analyze and test the efficacy of tools and pedagogical approaches, and will provide training activities for teachers. While Up2U finished in 2020 and reported a positive impact on teachers, it also identified their further needs. This Up2DigiSchool project will adopt that methodology and the technical solutions, update it to the current circumstances and newly-recognised teachers’ needs, and extend the previous target schools base to make a positive impact on more teachers of Europe.
- To improve the current situation in digital education in Europe.
- To support schools’, teachers’, and educators’ preparedness for digital transformation and developing digital skills and competences of students.
- To extend the free open-source Up2U platform with new features and services.
The project is implemented by consortium of seven partners from five countries, including Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Centre (PSNC), Kaunas University of Technology (KTU), Kaunas Region Education Centre (KRSC), National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Ellinogermaniki Agogi (EA), Sapienza University of Rome (URoma) and Governmental Agency for IT Development (KIFÜ). PSNC acts as Up2DigiSchool project coordinator.
