Procurers represent the demand side of learning technology procurement. LEA will bring learn tech procurers together into a Europe-wide network.
Suppliers for learning technology include small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs), start-ups as well as market leaders.
Learn tech experts
Learning technology experts assist the dialogue between supply and demand in the learning technology procurement process. Experts ensure the evaluation of learning technology beyond the user-experience.
Schools are the end-users of Learning technologies. LEA School labs co-design future learntech innovation with students and teachers.
LEA - the learning technology accelerator
LEA Followers consist of procurers, suppliers, learn tech experts and schools, who are all invited to join the project as observers, following the project activities and results, sharing their experiences and talking about lessons learned. Followers receive updates on the LEA project through newsletters and on the LEA website and they are welcome to participate in LEA capacity building seminars and other networking events.
PCP (pre-commercial procurement)
PCP is a public procurement of research and development services. It is an important tool to stimulate innovation as it enables the public sector to steer the development of new solutions directly towards its needs.
PPI (public procurement of innovation)
PPI occurs when the public sector uses its purchasing power to act as an early adopter of innovative solutions which are not yet available on a large-scale commercial basis.
PLE (personalised learning environment)
PLEs are systems enabling students to control and define their own learning processes under the mentoring of a teacher. This includes adapted learning based on ability, skills, and goals. The PLE system allows connecting students, teachers, parents, and the wider community by means of open and commercial ICT solutions inside and outside the school facilities, supporting a lifelong learning process.
