The Collaborative Design for Smart Pupils project has been developed since 2015 and is funded through the Erasmus + program. The project consortium is made up of nine partners, four from France - Collège André Saint-Paul (Le Mas d'Azil), Collège François Verdier (Lezat sur Lèze), Science Animation Centre de Culture Scientifique, Technique et Industrielle de Midi-Pyrénées and Communauté de communes Léze-Ariège-Garonne- and five from Catalonia - Escola Virolai de Barcelona, Institut Ernest Lluch, Everis, The Social Coin and Generalitat deCatalunya-Secretaria de Telecomunicacions, Ciberseguretat i Societat Digital-. For two years, this experimental project has invited the educational community (students, teachers and families) to analyze their school and make proposals for improvement using the cooperative work method with an important component of self-learning.
