The project is an observation framework for the understanding of innovation and change in education brought on by the use of ICT and the emergence of the Information Society.
eWATCH will provide support to the SOCRATES/MINERVA Action and other interested parties in the analysis of change affecting education, training and lifelong learning.
The eWATCH project identifies the following activity areas of interest:
1. Monitoring public policies at national, regional and local level across Europe as regards the use of ICT including information on school markets and indicators.
2. Harvesting Field and Innovation Intelligence in the area of ICT-based learning.
3. Cataloguing innovative practices in schools and higher education establishments.
4. Promoting the dissemination and sharing of gathered knowledge, including policy and project result.
The eWATCH Observatory will actually consist of a framework of meta-analysis, to support the monitoring, evaluation and benchmarking of policies and practices related to the use of ICT in learning, in schools. Ultimately, it will support the policy decision-making and public awareness, by incorporating the widely accepted framework for quality in school education in Europe, the data and information provided by the Ministries of Education, the EURYDICE and Eurostat and by taking into account the research work carried out, in parallel, by the OECD and IEA.
