Project description

I was the project lead for SELFIE, a tool that helps schools collectively reflect on their digital capacity. For the development, testing and implementation of the tool I supervised a team of eight in-house staff as well as external service providers. The development of the tool started as a small-scale, low budget exploratory project which I initiated with the support of my managers. The initial plan was to develop a prototype and test it in 60 schools in 4 countries. However, due to the innovative and participatory design and the strong interest of EU countries in the tool, the pilot took place in 650 schools in 14 countries. Following the successful pilot, SELFIE became a priority project for the Commission under the Digital Education Action Plan in early 2018 and the follow up plan of 2020. Through excellent collaboration with all teams involved in, SELFIE was released in 24 languages, on time and within budget, in October 2018.

I attended the press launch event in Warsaw with Commissioner Navracsics where I gave several media interviews (including Euronews). The uptake of the tool has been highly successful with over 640,000 users in 57 countries by April 2020 (see updated figures here). The tool is well explained via those YouTube videos.
