L-Cloud: developing tomorrow’s Cloud educational leaders

L-Cloud is an Eramsus+ Key Sction 2 project in the field of Strategic Partnerships for school education. Cloud System adoption in education remains fragmented because while Cloud Computing offers many advantages, decision makers are largely unaware of the potential benefits for learning, teaching, administration and management. Therefore, training and support systems are needed to help educators, keep up to date with the rapidly changing Cloud Computing system environment. Leadership is also needed for pedagogical change, otherwise educators will continue the paradox of using new technological tools with old teaching methods. The need for the development of the L-Cloud proposed project has derived partly from the results of the project SoC (School on the Cloud - connecting education to the Cloud for digital citizenship network) which explored how education should respond to Cloud Computing developments and how Cloud-based services can be used to improve the quality of education and transform the way schools are led and managed. The SoC project has demonstrated that leadership for change is needed.  The main issue today is no longer access to technology, but the capability to establish meaningful leadership for Cloud-based learning, teaching and administration as a sustainable basis for the evolution of Education.

L-Cloud is designed to promote the leadership for change and will produce the following main outputs:

1. Developing Guidelines for Skills and Competences for Adaptive Education Cloud Leaders

2. Developing a Qualification Framework for Education Cloud Leaders based on Skills and Competence. This process includes the definition and validation of the competence framework as well as the definition of an International Professional Certification Programme.

3. Designing a course for developing adaptive education cloud leaders

International Assisted Communication for Education I-ACE

I-ACE is an Erasmus+ Key Action 2 project in the field of Strategic Partnerships for school education. Inter-personal communication and international cooperation play a key role in education and in a broader sense, in active citizenship. These opportunities should be equally available to all, promoting social inclusion. 
However, the access to these opportunities by disabled people is constrained, in particular for deaf people due to the barriers they face in daily communication. These are facts that severely compromise the development of creative, emotional and social skills in deaf students. Barriers to education limit future opportunities. Any contribution to tear these barriers down promotes equity.The I-ACE project will establish an innovative infrastructure to promote fluid communication with, and between, deaf students from different European countries. This infrastructure includes an automatic European Sign Language Translator allowing the automatic bi-directional translation between sign language and written speech in six European sign languages thus reducing the communicational gap and contributing to promote the access to education and a better quality of life of deaf students.
The I-ACE project aims to transfer innovative research results and put them to the service of the European community.
