  1. Methods and Technologies for Learning ICMTL 2005Palermo (Italy) March 9-11, 2005 EU Policies and Programmesfor eLearning Maruja Gutierrez Diaz DG Education and Culture

  2. A vision for Europe:Lisbon revisited The Mid-term Report: • A sober analysis of the evolution since 2000 • A reassessment of objectives and methods • Sustained effort is required at all levels, public and private, European and national, personal • Re-affirmation of knowledge as the key factor for competitiveness, growth and social cohesion

  3. eLearning in the EU:a basic tool for all key policies • Education and training • Research and development • Information Society • Competitiveness and Innovation • Social policy and employment(ESF) • Regional development policy (ERDF) • Cooperation and external relations

  4. Education & Training 2010 • Re-focussing on core objectives • Enhancing quality • Increasing accessibility • Connecting to society • Re-visiting the open coordination method • Peer-learning: clusters, focus groups, study visits • European frameworks • Designing a new tool • Integrated lifelong learning programme 2007-2013

  5. The eLearning Programme Four areas of action: • Promoting digital literacy 10% budget • European Virtual Campuses 30% budget • eTwinning of European schools 45% budget • Transversal actions7,5% budget 44 Million Euro for three years (2004-2006)

  6. Socrates - Minerva • Understanding and supporting change • Promoting innovation and experimentation • Answering to specific needs and priorities • Fostering European networks in this field Around 9,5 million Euro per year

  7. eLearning in the futureLifelong Learning (LLL) programme

  8. eLearning in the 7th Framework Programme for Research • A specific programme for ICT • Advanced research on technological issues; reinforcement of European physical and virtual research infrastructure • A specific programme “Science in society” • Socioeconomic research • Understanding the impact of ICT for people and for society • A specific programme “Competitiveness and Innovation” • Linking research with industry and society

  9. Information Society • i2010: innovation, investment, inclusion • Technology Enhanced Learning • eTEN: eLearning as a priority for deployment • eContent: addressing a crucial sector • eInclusion, eGovernment, eBusiness • eLearning Conference: 19-20 May, 2005

  10. Social policy and employment • Digital literacy: ICT as a new literacy • eSkills: ICT as an essential tool for work • ICT and employment: European Strategy for Employment • Equality of chances: special needs, women • Innovative actions

  11. Regional development • ICT and regional development • Economic development: industries, services, PPP, training services, • Social development: public services (government, health, social services, education) • Innovative actions: Innovating Regions, Learning Regions, Learning Cities… • The European dimension: a Europe of regions

  12. External relations and cooperation to development • Increasing interest in education as one of the best international cooperation tools • Growing number of specific agreements • Increasing interest in education as one of the best cooperation for development tools • Neighbourhood policy, WSIS… • Increasing role of ICT in their implementation

  13. eLearning evolution:a deep change Integration of ICT in education has moved • From research to practice • From awareness to take-up • From pilot projects to mainstreaming • From technological to cultural barriers But it still calls for political leadership

  14. eLearning evolution:still a long way to go • Lack of a common understanding of basic concepts: e-learning, digital literacy, • Lack of comparable and timely data, of relevant output indicators and of adequate monitoring tools • Lack of sufficient pedagogical research on the learning results of e-learning • Investment in ICT has reached significant levels – yet, there is no clear evidence of a satisfactory ROI Is the integration of ICT attaining its objectives ?

  15. eLearning policy:need for an integrated approach Between different learning levels: Lifelong learning eLearning as a transversal issue, as a thread linking different levels of learning and different types of learners Between research and practice Fostering technological, pedagogical, socio-economic and, in particular, user-oriented, learning-oriented research Between supply and demand Building a solid demand, creating fair conditions for supply Standards, interoperability, IPR & DRM, multilingual issues Fostering public-private partnerships
