ABOUT THE AWARDS

Since 2001, European Schoolnet has been running the eLearning Awards competition to acknowledge and highlight teachers’ and schools’ best practices in the pedagogical use of ICT.

Many teachers find innovative ways of teaching and learning based on new technologies, but often their work is not known outside a small circle. The eLearning Awards help teachers to have their creativity and technical skills recognised, and at the same time show to a wider audience how ICT helps improve their methodology, enriches their work in the classroom and positively impacts on children’s learning. The eLearning Awards gallery displays all entries grouped by country and makes inspiring work from Europe and beyond easily accessible for peer learning.

As in 2009, winning entries in the eLearning Awards will also be included in the Learning Resource Exchange library (http://lreforschools.eun.org), the largest learning resource repository in Europe with more than seventeen Ministries of Education participating.

The eLearning Awards competition has attracted thousands of entries from schools in over forty countries in Europe since its inception. All projects are evaluated by an international jury of educational experts. Winners receive a prize for their school (cash and/or ICT equipment) and an invitation to the prize-giving ceremony that this year will be held at EMINENT 2010 in Copenhagen.

Over the last nine years, the winners have been invited to prize-giving ceremonies taking place as part of the EMINENT conference in Lisbon, Stockholm, Geneva, Prague, Paris, Bruges, Brussels, Rome and Vilnius. The EMINENT conference is a major European event in education, which brings together ICT policy makers from Agencies and Ministries of Education, experts, researchers and leading eLearning suppliers from the commercial sector.

The eLearning Awards 2010 competition is organised by European Schoolnet (www.europeanschoolnet.org), a network of thirty-one Ministries of Education, with the support of major industry players in the area of new technologies for teaching and learning. A list of sponsors will be announced shortly.
