Co-MAP @ the School Innovation Summer School 2022

Co-MAP was presented during a dedicated session “Developing innovative school projects that fit the needs of the society” on Thursday 7/7/2022 during the School Innovation Summer School 2022. The “School Innovation” Summer School aimed to familiarize participants with the open schooling approach that provides a robust framework for school heads and teachers to engage, discuss and explore: how schools need to evolve, transform and reinvent; how schools facilitate open, more effective and efficient co-design, co-creation, and use of educational content tools and services for personalized learning and teaching; how schools can become innovation incubators and accelerators. School Innovation is understood in terms of a school’s pathway to digital maturity (e-maturity) and its comprehensive relationship to the use of ICT, as well as a school’s pathway to openness, demonstrated in its relationship with external stakeholders, parental engagement, in fostering the well-being of its community as a whole, in its ability to combine the delivering of the curriculum with a study of local challenges, in its willingness and capacity to share its achievements with other schools and in its engagement with contemporary Responsible Research Innovation (RRI) challenges.

Since Co-MAP talks to a common and urgent challenge shared by communities across the European Union where schools must play a generation-defining role in securing fair and equal access to education for all young people in the midst of a global health crisis that threatens ‘business as usual’ participation in schooling, the participants of the School Innovation Summer School were highly interested in the work and outputs of the project.
