European Schoolnet is the network of 31 European Ministries of Education, based in Brussels. As a not-for-profit organisation, we aim to bring innovation in teaching and learning to our key stakeholders: Ministries of Education, schools, teachers, researchers, and industry partners.
Since its founding in 1997, European Schoolnet has used its links with education ministries to help schools make effective use of educational technologies, equipping both teachers and pupils with the skills to achieve in the knowledge society.
European Schoolnet provides both Ministries and schools with: information and services relating to the innovative use of educational technology; outreach campaigns on specific educational topics such as maths, science and technology; and research activities.
In particular, European Schoolnet pledges to:
Support schools in achieving effective use of ICT in teaching and learning
Improve and raise the quality of education in Europe
Promote the European dimension in education
To fulfil our goals, we develop European-funded projects with the European Commission, the Ministries of Education and industry partners. These projects include Future Classroom Lab (Designing the Future Classroom) and All you need is code (promote coding and computational thinking at all levels of education). We also run a number of services for teachers and policymakers, such as Scientix, to promote science education, and Insafe, dedicated to digital citizenship skills and online safety.
European Schoolnet was also the coordinator of ECB - Ingenious, now continuing with the STEM Alliance.
European Schoolnet and CSR Europe act as coordinating bodies of the STEM Alliance. The two networks jointly coordinate the various industries, representatives from education systems, schools, teachers and pupils involved in the initiative.

Description of activities:
The education policy and strategy in Greece is mainly exercised by the Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs, (MoE) assisted in its work by a number of institutional entities.
The Ministry of Education (MoE) has established the strategic plan for the "Digital School", in order to modernize the education system through the use of the ICTs. In the context of the "Digital School", on-going and near future actions in both primary and secondary education evolve the wide use of innovative technologies (i.e., Web 2.0 applications tools), in order to enhance the traditional and lecture-dominant teaching methods and to provide a flexible and attractive learning environment.
The "New School" strategy constitutes a systematic and comprehensive approach with complementary measures implemented simultaneously in a coordinated way (e.g. investment in digital infrastructure, development of new learning materials, change of curricula, teachers training). All new services have been designed in a way that ensure a successful deployment based on the following three key success factors:
- The active participation of teachers (both primary and secondary) into the process of development of the digital learning materials and the everyday use during the teaching process.
- The active involvement of all the educational units in all learning subjects.
- The establishment of a continuous evaluation process in order to ensure the quality of the digital educational resources.
Although the Educational Reform consists of several individual actions, it becomes also a coherent common tool in order to provide synergies and efficiencies mainly focus on:
- Training policies in terms of initial training, the teachers' constant support and the in-service training in new curricula for the directors.
- Inclusion policies focus mainly on "Zones of Educational Priority".
- The rationalization of the school administration, based upon two major action of:
- A new merging plan for school entities.
- A certification of administrative efficiency diploma in education.
- The School Evaluation policy with special attention to the development of an external evaluation framework.
- The New Curricula development based on learning outcomes.
Related actions include:
- Better establishment of the "Bring You Own Device" (BYOD) project to primary and secondary schools.
- Installation of computer laboratories with enhanced functionalities (i.e., broadband wireless access, multimedia equipment) and integration of advanced devices such as interactive whiteboards.
- Schools interconnection to municipal optical metropolitan area networks, enabling high-speed optical access to Greek School Network (GSN).
