Launched in 1998, the ASEF Classroom Network (ASEF ClassNet) fosters collaborations among secondary and high school teachers and students in Asia and Europe while harnessing the potential and opportunities of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) for education. To-date, more than 1,400 teachers from 45
ASEM partner countries have joined the ASEF Classroom Network. In addition, more than 31,000 students have been engaged in 359 online collaborations since 2001. ASEF ClassNet is unique because it comprises the following three activities:
1. ASEF ClassNet Conferences for teachers to network and to enhance their professional skills
2. ASEF ClassNet Online Collaborations jointly developed and run by Asian and European schools to facilitate and promote inter-cultural exchanges between teachers and students
3. ASEF ClassNet Website to connect schools and teachers through one online platform
The 13th ASEF ClassNet Conference will be organised together with a Research Conference by the ASEM Education and Research Hub for Lifelong Learning (ASEM LLL Hub) on theme of “ Theory Meets Practice: Enhancing Teacher Training in the Digital Era”. The joint event will take place from 8 –11 September in Zug, Switzerland in conjunction with the World Education Leadership Symposium, by the Institute for the Management and Economics of Education (IBB), University of Teacher Education Zug (PH Zug).
The 13th ASEF ClassNet conference brings together researchers, teacher trainers and teachers to share experiences, good practices and to identify actions and develop policy recommendations to respond collaboratively to the needs of teacher training in the face of technology advancements and their impact on education.
