Themes and goals of the event
In our digital age, students have dramatically new learning needs. Educators and Administrators of schools and learning institutions are trying to adjust to these needs by moving towards smart classrooms using smart digital learning, which lays its foundations on smart devices and intelligent technologies. Indeed, by tapping into the use of modern technologies such as Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, 3D printing and Chatbox, educators can revolutionize the way they educate, making learning more effective, flexible and efficient. This TCA aims, therefore, to look into these new possibilities and to examine how to combine online and onsite learning and how this technology can encourage real-time collaboration via eTwinning and the Erasmus+ programme. Indeed, eTwinning will be explored as the main means through which students are provided with the opportunity to quality modern education which will help them understand concepts better, improve their reading and comprehensive skills and ultimately achieve academic excellence.

Expected results
Networking, new partnerships, new project ideas for Erasmus+ KA2 eTwinning projects in the field of school education, draft applications and the eventual increased participation of schools in eTwinning projects targeting digital learning
