We did it: at the end of this year, all secondary schools in the Brussels-Capital Region will be equipped with broadband internet. This opens many doors for the schools concerned, but also raises a great amount of questions. That is why the Brussels Regional Informatics Centre has decided to zoom in on connected schools at its next Smart City event. Our host will be the Royal Athenium Crommelynck in Woluwe-Saint-Pierre. The programme of this dynamic, instructive day filled with interesting content includes the following activities: knowledge sharing between headmasters and headmistresses, an interactive training and animation for primary and secondary school students, and workshops for parents and teachers. Do reserve 27 November in your agenda!
