3rd Asia-Europe Classroom (AEC) International Teachers' Conference

Project Period: Contact: Department: Programme: Theme:
28 Sep 03 - 02 Oct 03 Asia-Europe Foundation Education Department ASEF Classroom Network (ASEF ClassNet) Education



Venue:
Bogor (Indonesia)

OVERVIEW

Conceived in 1998, the Asia-Europe Classroom (AEC) serves as an on-line forum for increased intercultural exchanges among high school students in Asia and Europe. The AEC aims to contribute to the improvement of the quality of education using information technology while forging strong partnerships and exchange of knowledge among secondary and high school students and teachers in Asia and Europe.

The 3rd Conference, co-organised in collaboration with Madania School and the Department of National Education, Indonesia, attracted over 60 high school teachers or educators from 14 ASEM countries, who discussed ways to further strengthen and expand the AEC network. They also collaborated on developing new on-line collaborative projects, all of which have the potential of further enriching exchanges and dialogue among the secondary and high school student from Asia and Europe. As a result, seven new AEC Projects, involving around 50 schools from 14 countries in Asia and Europe, were endorsed during the conference.

The AEC Awards 2003 were conferred to the top three AEC Project Groups who have produced outstanding on-line learning platforms or applications under the AEC framework. The award recipients were:

  • Cultural Fusion - The Global Teenager
  • Handshakes All Around the World - A Virtual Homestay
  • Living in a Multicultural World

The social and cultural programme included a visit to the Bogor Botanical Garden and a courtesy call to the Presidential Palace in Jakarta, where the participants had the privilege of meeting the Indonesian former President, HE Mrs Megawati Soekarnoputri.
