People matter: Exemplary education builds on positive relationships and learning communities that engage students in a variety of both academical and personal learning processes. The role of teachers to guide student learning has transformed significantly throughout the last decades towards a varied, collaborative and holistic approach focused on formative and constructivist learning processes. Technology offers new ways to enrich and personalize learning, and seamlessly extend the classroom.
