Description

The School-foresight project “Launching a Visionary Quest for the Intelligent School of Tomorrow on the basis of Relevant State-of-the-art Scientific and Technological Achievements” was an EU-funded science communication project under the European Science Week initiative (ESW 2004). The project aimed to realize different visions for the “intelligent school of tomorrow” unveiling, particularly to school students, new horizons that are created thanks to the contribution of scientific and technological achievements performed in the European Research Area.

The visualisation of the “intelligent school of tomorrow” was realised by focusing on two scientific and technological domains: a) new learning techniques and ICT technologies affecting learning process, methods and tools and b) ICT & eco-efficient technologies in intelligent school buildings affecting school as a physical entity. 5 cities of Greece, Estonia, Romania, Bulgaria and Czech Republic hosted a diversified Information Programme before, during and after the European Science Week 2004, including publicity, core, and closing events. 5 interactive exhibitions, debate workshops, a virtual ‘classroom of tomorrow’ comprising a synchronous collaborative lesson (of science and technology’s impact on school education) were used to achieve the project objectives. At least 10,000 secondary school students of 5 European countries participated in project activities and interacted with the most recent state-of-the-art S&T achievements.
