School: Ministry of National Education -Director General for Innovation and Educational Technologies (MoNE DGIET)


Topic(s) addressed

Leveraging open technology and open learning resources for quality content and learning experiences was the main focus of the project. It also dealt with ICT new technologies and digital competences, pedagogy and didactics, as well as inclusion and equity.

Target group(s)

The project targeted a large group of teachers and trainers across various educational institutions including secondary schools, universities, local authorities and ministers of education.


The project aimed to create a roadmap for teacher professional development and guide schools in designing innovative learning spaces, progressing from theory to practice. It developed a "Methodological Framework for Innovative Classroom Training" as a theoretical foundation and a practical guide for teacher trainers. The project also created learning scenarios as real-life examples and offered blended capacity-building activities.

Innovation environment

‘Design Future Innovative Learning Spaces’ promoted innovation and technology-enhanced learning within schools and teachers' practices through a multifaceted approach. This included analysing successful practices in innovative learning spaces involving various stakeholders, developing a strong theoretical foundation, strategies, and guidelines to enhance pedagogy within these spaces, supporting practical implementation through interdisciplinary learning scenarios, establishing an accessible online training platform for a wide audience at national and EU levels.

Teachers’ role

The project primarily aimed to promote innovative learning spaces in education and develop an online training platform for K-12 teachers and trainers. The main focus was on these target groups as they play a pivotal role in improving teaching skills and competencies. As part of the project's core activities, most participants were teachers and trainers who had completed the training courses and teacher capacity building program.

Impact and output

Data from Pan-European Training, including self-reviews, pre-course, and post-course surveys, revealed strong participant motivation for innovative approaches and learning spaces across three diverse groups.

The training included three types of sessions: one for Pan-European Trainers with live sessions and online content over four weeks, followed by scenario development; one for Trainers' Training in Austria, Czechia, Spain, and Türkiye, covering similar topics; and one for teachers from these countries conducted online, overseen by local trainers.

Detailed analysis showed that participants significantly improved their knowledge of innovative pedagogies and technology integration in teaching.
