TACCLE2 Final Conference –
TACCLE2 Slotconferentie
ICT as an Added Value to my Teaching Practice
ICT als een toegevoegde waarde in de lespraktijk
VUB – Brussels, 17 Octobre 2014
VUB – Brussel, 17 oktober 2014
ICT is essential to innovative teaching for the 21st century. This is a common point of view amongst
educators and politicians alike. But teachers often wonder how they can actually implement ICT into their
daily practice in such a way that it is an added value to the learning process.
The EU funded TACCLE2 project, coordinated by GO!, aims at resolving this with 5 practical guides to
integrate ICT and e-learning in EVERY classroom:
primary education,
maths, science and technology,
key competences,
arts and culture and
humanities are the subjects covered.
Both the books and the taccle2.eu website offer practical materials and ideas customised for YOUR subject
area and pupil age range.
On October 17th we present the results of the project as part of a broad conference focussing on the
applied educational use of ICT. Our venue is the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
You are invited to be part of this event. Participation is free but you need to register. Every participant
receives a complementary set of 5 books.
ICT is een cruciaal element van innovatief lesgeven. Daarover zijn zowel beleidsmensen als de meeste
leraren het eens. Maar leraren vragen zich wel af hoe ze dit dan daadwerkelijk moeten toepassen in hun
eigen klaspraktijk, voor hun vak.
TACCLE2 is een door de EU betoelaagd internationaal project met GO! als coördinator. Via TACCLE2 willen
we dit probleem aanpakken met 5 praktische gidsen over hoe je met ICT en digitaal leren aan de slag kan in
iedere klas:
Kunst en Cultuur
Via deze 5 boeken en via de http://taccle2.eu website bieden we een waaier aan praktijkvoorbeelden en
Op 17 oktober presenteren we de resultaten van TACCLE2 tijdens een internationale conferentie in de
gebouwen van de Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
We nodigen je graag uit voor deze conferentie. Deelname is gratis maar registratie vooraf is wel verplicht.
Iedere deelnemer krijgt na afloop een set van 5 boeken gratis mee naar huis.

Key-note: Catherine Cronin (National University of Ireland, Galway) Open to possibility: Networked
learning with our students.
“The key tenets of my teaching and learning philosophy are Openness, Networking and Collaboration. I
consider myself an open educator rather than a "lecturer". I teach at 3rd level in Ireland, but I work often
with educators in other institutions and countries -- as most open educators do. In addition, I consciously
work across education sectors, i.e. collaborating with educators and students at both primary and
secondary levels. I think it is these connections -- beyond our individual classrooms -- that unlock the true
potential of digital, networked learning. We are only beginning to realise the power of this in our schools
and universities.”
