The Kaleidoscope Core Group, in collaboration with the Kaleidoscope Dissemination Team, have developed the new Kaleidoscope mission statement.
Shaping the scientific evolution of Technology Enhanced Learning
'Kaleidoscope is the European research network shaping the scientific evolution of technology enhanced learning. It integrates the leading research teams in the field, who work collaboratively across educational, computer and social sciences to transform the quality and reach of the learning experience. Kaleidoscope fosters innovation and creativity through the development of new technologies, methodologies and concepts, defining the challenges and solutions for interdisciplinary research.
Kaleidoscope’s goal is to inform knowledge transfer between education, industry, and the wider society. Through its scientific programme, Kaleidoscope is helping to build a dynamic knowledge-based economy for Europe, engaging with social, economic and political stakeholders at all levels.'
Nicolas Balacheff, director and co-founder of Kaleidoscope, says, "This new mission reflects the progress and future direction and sustainability of the project. It encapsulates what makes Kaleidoscope unique - its scientific underpinnings, its distributed nature, the expertise of all the researchers involved with it."
