On Friday, September 18th, we are going to organise our next event "Digital textbooks turn schools…".
The purpose of the event is to present the final results of our Learnmix project, talk about the program of digital learning materials run by Ministry of Education and Research, discuss in a panel session about digital textbooks and their influence on school innovations, explore some business models, technical solutions and changing pedagogical strategies related to digital textbooks, introduce a Finnish educational cloud and demonstrate the ongoing development of eKoolikott.
The title of the conference is left open on purpose. Our idea is to encourage participants to think of digital textbooks and their influence on schools.
