The METASCHOOL project aims to improve the in-service training of school teachers and school ICT staff on topics related to the organisation, sharing, use and re-use of digital learning resources that can be accessed online through learning repositories. The overall objective of the project is not only to improve teacher practice, but also to raise the awareness of teachers across Europe on the need for accurate tagging of resources. It achieves this through a user-friendly approach that motivates teachers to quickly and easily add metadata to resources that they have both used and created.
