iTEC: Designing the Future Classroom iTEC: Designing the Future Classroom

In iTEC (Innovative Technologies for Engaging Classrooms, 2010-2014), European Schoolnet worked with education ministries, technology providers and research organisations to transform the way that technology is used in schools.

Over the course of the project, educational tools and resources were piloted in over 2,500 classrooms across 20 European countries, with the goal of providing a sustainable model for fundamentally redesigning teaching and learning. The project involved 26 project partners, including 14 Ministries of Education, and funding of €9.45 million from the European Commission’s FP7 programme. The project ended in August 2014.

Toshiba joins iTEC project

The iTEC project received a boost with the announcement of Toshiba’s joining the project as an Associate Partner. It is expected that Toshiba, which has been involved in a number educational initiatives previously, will provide expertise to support scenario development initially, working with iTEC partner Futurelab. Following on from these initial activities, it is envisaged that Toshiba will later provide technology used for piloting new pedagogical processes in schools, while increasing the number of schools involved in the pilots.

"Expanding the network of partners involved in the iTEC pilots will not only enable the project to better examine how innovative technologies can be deployed in classrooms but also to mainstream innovative teaching and learning practices and take them to scale" explains Marc Durando, Executive Director of European Schoolnet, the organisation that coordinates the iTEC project.
