Tenegen Textbook

English

The Tenegen Consortium dedicates this book to all teachers and trainers throughout Europe who are interested in adapting their pedagogical practices to meet the needs of the students born into the digital age. Ten years after a  Hungarian researcher wrote this:

“I do not see much sense in trying to prepare children for using intelligent IT systems of the future by running software from the past on yesterday’s computers, using pedagogical methods from the day-before-yesterday.”(Komenczy, 1999)

We can still say that European schools have not been able to change fundamentally their educational practice till now, in spite of the improvements made into ICT infrastructure, e-learning developments, and teacher training, encouraging them to use ICT in their every day classroom work.

Training teachers to use software applications in traditional classrooms is not sufficient at all to develop advanced networking competences. This was the main challenge for the Tenegen project which we met.  The traditional knowledge distribution methods for teachers were successfully embedded into the same networked learning environment that is a feature of every day life for the students.

How far did we get?  What kinds of experiences were collected during the one year long online collaboration with teachers? What are the main conclusions?
The answers are to be found in this book.
