Abstract

The paper reports on a case study concerning the e-/m-Learning implementation of theories and practices in school settings. Within the framework of the UNITE project, organisational, pedagogical, technical and infrastructural support was provided to a network of 14 European schools. This paper describes activities preceding and those undertaken through the launch of the UNITE system from the perspective of one enrolled school and its project partner. The system implementation, presented as iterative four stage process, covers scenario planning and implementation, validation along with platform and process improvement. Achieved intermediate results from the first iteration of the implementation process are discussed.
