Commission launches new tool to support digital teaching and learning in schools
The European Commission has today unveiled a new tool to help all schools in the EU, as well as in Russia, Georgia, and Serbia, to assess how they use digital technology for teaching and learning. In the EU, SELFIE (Self-reflection on Effective Learning by Fostering the use of Innovative Educational Technologies) will be offered to 76.7 million students and teachers in 250,000 schools on a voluntary basis. It is being launched in 24 EU languages with more language versions to follow. Any interested school (upper primary, secondary and vocational education schools) can sign up on the SELFIE platform and run the self-reflection in their school. The Commission’s goal is to reach 1 million students, teachers, and school leaders by the end of 2019.
