Smart Education: Trust-based Partnership

Research overview

Research reveals the realization of European active inclusion policies in all contexts, by identifying algorithms and models in the context of intelligent education.  Scientists analyse smart education based on research, experimental development (R&D), good practice and positive socialization, positive parenting strategies, social partnership principles and opportunities for experiential pedagogy.

The results of the research are significant for educational innovation, intersectoral, interdisciplinary integration, complex access formation, social partnership, networking, equal opportunities, poverty reduction, health, education, family, national identity policies, direct and local authorities.

Tasks of the cluster are as follows:

  • Analyze and justify the features of smart education and social clustering and inter-sectoral cooperation algorithms.
  • Analyze good practice in smart education and model relationships between family, school, and local community.
  • Systematize educational research, clinical initiatives, good practice cases and other data; develop new knowledge, competences, disseminate good practice arising from joint efforts of scientists, practitioners and users.
  • Analyze and define the links between positive parenting and social clustering.
  • Rationalize the social clustering algorithm as a key indicator of community well-being, sustainable development and active inclusion.
