Support for Schools
Are you a teacher, principal or school staff member? Would you like to try robots, artificial intelligence or other innovative technology solutions in your school? Connect with companies through the LEA School lab method.
Schools are the end users of learning technologies and thus participate in the co-development of future innovations, gain competences in learning technology and provide feedback to procurers on the developed innovations. LEA School Labs co-design future learn tech innovations with students and teachers.
- Increased digital competence and a strengthened EU STEM / PLE profile.
- Democratic processes include schools as co-developers of future technologies, which cater to their needs.
- Direct meetings in the classrooms between young EU citizens and the innovative industry.
- Direct dialogue with the market, which develops digital tools for education.
