Hi and welcome to the European Schoolnet Academy.
The Academy is a platform where you can learn about innovation in the school and classroom through online professional development courses for teachers in primary and secondary schools.
The courses offered on this platform are completely free of charge. They will offer you an introduction to key concepts and ideas that are relevant to developing your practice and will provide you with the opportunity to discuss these ideas and share your experiences with your peers. We hope that by attending these courses and by engaging with your peers you will feel empowered and inspired to try out something new in your practice.
The Academy is very much an experiment and we rely on your participation and feedback to make this project a success. So please use this opportunity, learn and connect with your peers and let us know what you think.
We look forward to seeing you on one of the courses! Happy learning...

Promoting Technology-Enhanced Teaching
This course invites policymakers, school heads and teachers to discuss the results of the MENTEP policy experimentation. More than 7000 teachers in 11 countries participated in the field trials that aimed at testing the impact of TET-SAT, a newly developed online tool for teachers to self-assess their technology-enhanced teaching. Thanks to the eager participation of the randomly selected teachers, MENTEP is one of the biggest experimentations in education across Europe.
