Netd@ys put new technology in the spotlight

Keywords Learning styles, Internet

The ways in which new technology is changing the role of teachers and trainers were emphasized during the third annual Netd@ys Europe. The themes for the event were citizenship, solidarity with the lonely and disadvantaged, science, art, the environment, unemployment and Europe's cultural identity and diversity. Organizations taking part included schools, vocational-training centres, cultural groups and children's hospitals. The projects selected for Netd@ys support ranged from cinema on the Internet to ways of discovering Mediterranean cooking.

The operation was supported by national and regional education authorities and businesses. The European Commission provided financial and technical help.
