This year, for the ninth time, the eLearning Awards event, organised by European Schoolnet , will take place – this time in Lithuanian Vilnius, 26-27 Nov 2009. An international jury of experts will choose winners among schools and teacher training institutions, which decided to take part in the competition for excellence and best use of technology in education. The winners will receive not only financial awards but also brand new ICT equipment. This year, the event will reach beyond Europe through a new category for international cooperation.
