Bridging the gap between schools and universities through informal education
A few steps to higher education
We believe that advanced digital skills are essential for students entering university. Up2U portfolio provides the tools to revolutionize your teaching method and motivates students to benefit from the latest technology during learning. Let us help you unfold the regular classroom and make learning fun.
Next Generation Digital Learning Environment
Up2U makes available a specific Next Generation Digital Learning Environment (NGDLE) that integrates the formal and informal learning spaces for secondary school students and teachers who wish to develop and enhance their teaching and learning skills up to the university standards.
In order to support universal use, our architecture is modular, scalable and portable. We rely on open technology and standard protocols wherever we can. Our ecosystem is compliant with the latest GDPR regulations by design.
Up2U’s NGDLE offers the following unique feature set:
WebSSO (via eduGAIN and social media accounts);
Group management (powered by eduTEAMS Hub);
OER content hub (via eduOER);
File Sync&Share storage platform (powered by CERNBox and ownCloud)
LTI tools integration and other third-party apps (aka. Up2Universe);
Have you noticed that keeping up the attention span of teenagers is getting more difficult? In a world where digital technology rules the world, why not benefit from it? Incorporating digital tools and services in your teaching method can result in more engaged students and helps them developing “critical thinking” and be more independent learners. Introducing value-added learning analytics and community-based digital reward system changes the learning scenario thus it becomes more adaptive to students liking.
Up2U project is building a community that can support the new trends and methods of digital teaching and learning. We provide tools and services that will help you implement digital learning scenarios in the classroom. A heterogeneous training plan is being elaborated that would be able to accommodate training teachers with different technology backgrounds. Pilot schools from various European countries will experiment with our concept and will share their lessons learned. Skills that can be acquired via these digital learning methods can drive up your enrolments with students ready for higher education.
Our project helps you to adapt to new learning scenarios that will be useful when attending a university. Experimenting with the informal learning spaces and develop new skills that will be inevitable in higher education. Up2U promotes technology in the classroom – no more boring classes! Engage with your fellow peers, explore the international Up2U universe ecosystem and experience with the digital reward system. Say goodbye to the old chalkboard and enjoy the era of digital classes.
