On 22 May 2023, we joined the official launch event of the first global community ‘Schools as drivers of innovation‘. This ‘network of networks’ (Schools+) will bring together education experts, school leaders and teachers from across the globe to respond to common challenges and inspire advances in classrooms, schools and policies. Issues that were explored included:
- the current state of education and aspirations for cross-border learning and collaboration between schools
- how networks are creating powerful ecosystems of education practitioners to learn, collaborate and share innovations, opportunities and challenges
- how generative artificial intelligence, like ChatGPT, is transforming teaching and learning, and how it will shape a new learning agenda.
As we have planned to involve schools in our EU project DAPLE proposal we expect to be able to both contribute to and get support from this community.
