Building on the first conference, ASEF ClassNet members gathered on 11-14 September 2002 in Tampere, Finland to learn from experts and share experiences of developing intercultural understanding through the use of ICT in their classrooms. Their endeavours during the previous year were recognised with the presentation of the inaugural ASEF ClassNet Awards.
At the inaugural conference on 2-5 September 2001 in Singapore, ASEF brought together teachers from across Asia and Europe who shared the desire to develop cross-cultural exchanges and ways of using the Internet as an education tool; the ASEF Classroom Network was born and its first Online Collaborations were proposed.
On 28 September – 2 October 2003 in Bogor, Indonesia, ASEF ClassNet teachers convened to share different ICT, pedagogical and intercultural practices adopted across Asia and Europe, and learnt how to adapt these to their own professional environment.
On 28 October - 1 November 2013 in Bali, Indonesia, members of the ASEF ClassNet community shared expertise and made practical plans to integrate ICT, art and local culture into environmental education. The conference inspired action with impacts within and beyond the classroom.
On 16-20 November 2015 in Sofia, Bulgaria, ASEF ClassNet teachers conversed in the 21st century language of coding. They shared good practices and received practical training from business and government representatives on the use of coding, web-based tools, and other technology in secondary, vocational and high-school education
Returning to Europe, the ASEF Classroom Network addressed the topic of integrating ICT in education; for some a dream, but for others a nightmare. To varying degrees, this was already a reality for many ASEF ClassNet members, and there was much to learn and share on 27 September - 1 October 2004 in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.
Exploring ever-advancing technologies, the ASEF Classroom Network considered the evolving role of a teacher in this digital environment. On 25-29 September 2005 in Beijing, China, participants were exposed to different Asian and European approaches during plenary sessions, working groups and interactive presentations.
On 9-13 October 2006 in Kerkini, Serres Prefecture, Greece, participating educators considered how best to build on the successes of the ASEF Classroom Network, with particular emphasis placed on the expansion of the online network.
Maintaining a focus on enhancing the future of the ASEF Classroom Network, participants at the conference on 12-16 December 2008 in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia considered how best to use new partnerships and networks to improve intercultural understanding and ICT skills among their students.
For the first time, the ASEF Classroom Network conference explored how intercultural understanding and ICT in secondary and high school education can be used to approach prescient environmental issues of our time. On 26 - 30 October 2009 in Sønderborg, Denmark, participants learnt from experts and shared methods for addressing climate change and sustainable development in the school community.
