A free, one-day Erasmus+ conference on Tuesday 13th December from 09:30, taking place at Queen’s University Belfast. The conference is an event that is organised as part of an Erasmus+ schools partnership that includes participants from France, Germany, Italy, Austria and Greece.
At the event, you will learn about the following in three Sessions:
1. Our iDEAL project and the valuable skills, experiences and qualifications students and staff have gained. The event will also show case project work, with representatives of all six schools participating
2. You will find out how simple it can be with eTwinning to get partners, develop projects quickly in the classroom and join a learning community leading onto how to apply for funding for larger projects through the Erasmus+ programme
3. iTeach – Northern Ireland’s leading iPad training and consultative company, will share how they have supported our project and how EU funds can be used for whole school iPad Staff Development. iTeach will also be giving free training to attendees on the use of the latest digital strategies and Apps in learning and teaching. Please bring your iPad with you on the day.
A complimentary lunch will be provided and free coffee/tea will be available throughout the day.
Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport. It runs for seven years, from 2014 to 2020, with organisations invited to apply for funding each year to undertake creative and worthwhile activities. Almost one billion euros will be allocated to the UK alone over seven years.
Following the result of the referendum of the European Union, the National Agency for Erasmus+ in the UK, a partnership of the British Council and Ecorys UK, is continuing to manage the Erasmus+ programme in the UK. The UK government and the European Commission have both emphasised that as long as the UK is a member of the EU, all EU laws and obligations apply and that includes Erasmus+. Organisations and participants should therefore continue to prepare for the application deadlines in 2017 as usual.
Our project has had a lasting impact on all participants; it has promoted the use of digital learning and teaching in the classroom as well as strengthen the European identity of those taking part.
