The idea of the Learning Environment Technologies & Schooling Group VZW (LET & Schooling Group VZW) has become increasingly prominent during the last few years. It is becoming clear that schools can be re-created, made vital, and sustainably renewed not by order and command, not by regulation, but by a learning orientation.
This means involving everyone in the system in expressing their aspirations, building their awareness, and developing their capabilities together. In a school that produces learning, people who traditionally may have been suspicious of one another – parents and teachers, educators and local business people, administrators and union members, people inside and outside the school walls, students and adults – recognize their common stake in the future of the school system and the things they can learn from one another.
Since 2003, LET & Schooling Group VZW has been a leader in professional development, providing expertly-crafted, classroom-applicable courses to the teachers based on interdisciplinary approach across the globe.
