We are very proud of this result and thank for all members of the consortium who put the maximum of their professionality into the very heavy, two years long collaboration. TENEGEN community will continue this collaboration in order to "... connect the teachers to reach and teach the Net Generation" all over Europe.
The experinences of the one year long online course and heavy online collaboration - with participation of more than hundred Hungarian teachers from vocational education - are published in a book available here: E-learning - Teachers challenged by the Net Generation.
You can get an insight to the theoretical background of Tenegen based on the learning theory called "connectivizm" from the study of the Hungarian professor, Dr. István Bessenyei: Networked learning.
Tenegen was a 24-month long project (ended on 30th of September 2010) by a team of 11 partners from five countries, framed by transferring the outcomes from the LdV projects: SLOOP-Sharing Learning Objects in an Open Perspective and NETIS - Network for Teaching Information Society). The suggested philosophical, sociological and pedagogical paradigms and the technological model has been transplanted into practice trough the one year long online collaboration of Hungarian teachers and trainers and staff of higher education.
