Some of our projects:

ATiT manages the MEDEA2020 project which is aimed at supporting the sharing of know-how in the usage of media to support learning at different levels. We have for instance set up a Media & Learning Community, an online community of practice on media and learning that is linked to the MEDEA Awards and the Media & Learning Conference.
 
ATiT manages the MEDEAnet project which is promoting media-based learning to organisations and practitioners through local training and networking events, online resources and knowledge sharing. The MEDEAnet Consortium aims to extend the reach of the informal network of organisations and practitioners linked to the annual MEDEA Awards by providing opportunities for local events linked to the MEDEA Awards and to involve not only early adopters, but also mainstream practitioners in networking opportunities.
 
ATiT is a partner in the VISCED project which is making an inventory of innovative ICT-enhanced learning initiatives and major 'e-mature' secondary and post-secondary education providers for the 14-21 age group in Europe. This entails a systematic review at international and national levels including a study into operational examples of fully virtual schools and colleges. The outputs of this work are being analysed and compared to identify relevant parameters and success factors for classifying and comparing these initiatives.This initiative is open to researchers and policy makers, all outputs will be published on the VISCED project wiki.
