Focus Groups and Transnational Good Practice Forum
In October 2013 several focus groups were organized in various countries with primary secondary school teachers and university professors.
The main goal was to receive comments on teaching and learning practices along with some concrete suggestions for potential improvement. In most countries, partipicants agreed that ways of teaching can be improved/changed and that technology should not be the goal, but the tool. The focus groups were accompanied by an international event: the First Synergy Workshop in collaboration with the eLearn2learn project.

For all levels of education essential aspects are pedagogical/andragogical: the use of technology in the teaching and learning process should be driven by relevant acknowledged methodology and pedagogical practices.
