The 11th ASEF ClassNet Conference falls under the greater framework of the ASEF Classroom Network (ASEF ClassNet) programme. Launched in December 1998, the ASEF ClassNet programme aims to foster collaborations among secondary and high school teachers and students in Asia and Europe. The Network harnesses the potential of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in connecting secondary and high schools in Asia and Europe and constructing a framework for a "cyber classroom" that would promote and facilitate intellectual and inter-cultural exchanges among secondary and high school teachers and students of the two regions.

Professional enrichment for participants
Presentations of ASEF ClassNet Projects and Awards
Discussion and development of future ASEF ClassNet Projects
