A European research program to modernize education in the digital age
The ANGE project (Digital Anchoring in Institutional Governance) focuses on the study of digital anchoring in college and high school governance, as well as the transformations it induces. It wants to contribute to the modernization of European education systems. It is composed of a pan-European and an international team of researchers, teachers, trainers, school heads and educational staff who, together, want to support European institutions in a transformation related to digital technologies.

The ANGE Classlab
ANGE’s Class Lab is a laboratory to support change in education related to digital technologies and governance in education. Its goal is to be a lever of transformation of the establishment.
It is organized into a learning community made up of stakeholders : researchers, trainers, school heads, teachers, parents, students, professionals, local partners, etc. These learning communities make it possible to accompany experiments as close as possible to the field, thus becoming continuous training for teams, teachers and school heads. The concept of Class Lab is based on a 21st century conception of skills development of education actors and learners in the training institution.
The approach of Class Labs ANGE communities is the one of action research. It is based on methodological protocols : identification of the object of study, analysis and theoretical contributions from research and experimentation, formulation of future scenarios enriched by the advancement of research. The ANGE classlabs are organized in pan-European and international networks and work in face-to-face or distance learning.

AREAS OF INTERVENTION
Transnational meetings, short training sessions and a Think Tank to develop new educational strategies
Talis or Pisa analyzes data show that education systems do not evolve as fast as the world around them and that in the connected world we live, it is necessary to establish an effective collaborative world, as well as the conditions conducive to innovation at all levels, to develop the skills and self-confidence of teachers and to develop effective, horizontal governance of school heads.
THE FUTURE OF THE PROJECT
The sustainability of the project will be ensured by the pan-European team through its networks. The partner institutions will continuously communicate the results of the project to all stakeholders including policy makers.
If “e-education” is a strategic tool for our schools of tomorrow, it will only be able to respond to educational challenges that are rooted in the governance of schools and accompanied by the essential training for the digital uses of digital heads of schools and schools. teams.
