SELFIE Forum 2021

This October, the European Commission is organizing second edtition of the SELFIE Forum: Empowering schools for learning in the digital age. The event will bring together students, teachers and school leaders, national coordinators, policy makers and researchers as well as potential future SELFIE users. Commissioners Mariya Gabriel and Nicolas Schmit will both introduce the event.

Teachers, students and schools are also invited to take an active part in the forum. Until 20 September, they can submit a video, poster or other contribution to share their experience with SELFIE. See the specific requirements for the presented materials.

The forum will also cover

  • launch of the Work-Based Module (WBL) to bring VET institutions and companies closer in discussing how they jointly embed digital technology in the education and training,
  • presentation of SELFIE for Teachers, a new self-reflection tool designed to support the development of the teachers’ digital skills inside and outside of the school.

What is SELFIE?

SELFIE is a free tool to help schools integrate digital technologies into teaching, learning and evaluation. It was based on the European Commission framework on promoting digital-age learning in educational organisations. Schools can use it for self-assessment of the effectiveness of digital and innovative technologies they have in place.
