The ECOLE-network is a consortium of ten institutions from ten European countries: The Netherlands, Italy, Denmark, Spain, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Sweden, Norway, Portugal and Slovenia. Find more about the ten partners of this educational network

The thematic area of ECOLE is the Educational use of ICT with the focus on innovation in education. Its main goal is to render available contents for collaborative learning projects and to create a learning community for teachers and pupils from compulsory education systems, who are involved in project-based learning experiences supported by the use of ICT.

International conferences, meetings and seminars under the frame of the ECOLE-network are held regularly. Information on previous events as well as on events happening in the future can be found here.

Links to interesting and relevant sites connected to educational issues followed by short summaries are available here.
