Abstract

What can we learn from EU-school projects about the future learning approaches? The European Union has invested massively in ICT-projects promoting innovative use of the new technologies in school settings. The aim of the project Schoolforesight, with partners in Bulgaria, Estonia, Greece, Rumania, Czech Republic and Sweden, is to select and reflect on the best projects done so far. These projects will be popularized and presented at the EU science week the autumn 2004, reaching more than 10 000 students in five countries. This article describes and discusses the Schoolforesight project and the selection process of innovative EU-projects. A number of best cases will be presented and discussed in a European, American and global context. The future school is both a question of what is possible and what is desired. Different scenarios might be preferable depending on local context, history, language e t c or are we all moving into the "global classroom"?
