Connecting Education to the Cloud for Digital Citizenship (SoC)
School on the Cloud – Connecting Education to the Cloud for Digital Citizenship (SoC) – is an ICT network based on cloud technologies. It explores new dynamic ways in education that align with the way we think, share, learn and collaborate, across various sectors, by exploiting the opportunities arising from the Cloud.
School on Cloud (SoC) project responds to the dynamic, interactive, multimedia ICT environments that allow educational tools to be distributed in a range of formats.
The SoC ICT network has considerable impact through its working groups: guidance and advice for transition to the Cloud is created; the important role of iTeachers (innovative teachers) as major change agents in shaping the future of learning highlighted; learner-oriented (personalised and collective) approaches explored through integrating the Cloud activities and future dimensions envisioned as the Cloud empowers innovation and connects digital citizens.
The Network is funded by the European Commission under the Lifelong Learning Programme, Key Activity 3 – ICT Networks, with a duration of 3 years and includes more than 55 partners across Europe including also PMF Research as Italian partner.
