About P2V
P2V (Peer to Peer networking for Valorisation) was a two-year project supported by the European Commission Directorate General for Education and Culture. The project aimed to help teachers, inspectors and policy makers discover methods, pedagogies and inspection schemes in other countries using peer learning.

Partners in the project worked on three topics that are significant in widening the uptake of e-learning in schools: 

  • Digital resources: accessing, sharing across borders, common standards 
  • Digital literacy: competent, effective and responsible use of technology by all 
  • New learning environments: online learning, future schooling models

The P2V project took place in three strands: Policy Peer Reviews, Inspectorate Peer Reviews and School Peer Reviews and included:

Three policy peer reviews: in Ministries of Education in Lithuania, Spain (Catalonia) and France organised peer learning visits to exchange experience and views on the use of ICT in three contrasting education systems. From the visits emerged some key points related to successful ICT adoption in education systems.
 
Sixteen school peer reviews: Schools from Denmark (two), Norway (two), UK (Northern Ireland) (three), Spain (Catalonia) (three), the Netherlands (one) and Austria (two) participated in peer learning activities. In P2V it was decided to create triads of schools peer reviewing each other. The approach was for all schools, while picking up ideas from all three topics of the project, to look more specifically at the topic of new learning environment and apply the P2P methodology to peer review innovative activities in these areas. For visits (subject to budget), two people (head and ICT or a particular subject area) in each school visit two other schools and host one visit. Inspectors join the visits. As part of the project, an online tool to perform peer learning was started and is under development (see TIES: Toolkit for Investigating eMaturity in Schools).

Six inspection peer reviews: Under the leadership of the Dutch inspectorate, Inspector of Education from France, Catalonia, Scotland, Sweden and Lithuania engaged in peer learning activities with support from the Standing International Conference of Inspectorate (SICI). The aim of the strand was to valorise the ICT assessment framework developed by inspectorates in the P2P project, testing and using it in different countries and look into the possibilities of adapting it for use as an audit tool for self-evaluation and as a roadmap for institutional change towards school e-maturity.

Among the main outcome of the projects are detailed accounts of how peer learning was conducted among policy makers, inspectors and schools in the project following a detailed methodology.

A key document describing the peer learning activities, methodologies, successes and problems encountered during the P2V project is the final version of the 'Common Analytical Framework, "A roadmap for change" (Dec 2008).

P2V is a continuation of previous peer learning projects, ERNIST and P2P.
