iTEC workshop at EMINENT 2012

The iTEC project was presented to a group of teachers, policymakers and education specialists at a workshop held as part of the EMINENT conference in Genoa, Italy. EMINENT is European Schoolnet’s annual conference for education policy makers and opinion shapers, which was held this year under the theme of ‘Schools in Europe in 2025’. Representatives from the iTEC project were there to showcase the progress to date of the initiative in its mission to design the future classroom.

Will Ellis, Project Manager of iTEC, presented the findings of the project’s intermediate public report, which measured the impact of the initiative in participating schools. To date, iTEC learning activities have already been piloted in over 500 classrooms across Europe. Teachers have reported that iTEC learning activities allow them the space to innovate, and that their experiences in the school pilots have provided them with confidence in using digital learning tools. The majority of teachers feel that the implementation led to new pedagogical practices in their teaching.

Teachers from Germany and Spain also spoke on how their teaching, and the students learning outcomes, have benefitted from the introduction of iTEC learning activities to their classroom practice.
