innovative Technologies for an Engaging Classroom

Project: Research

Project Details


iTEC is a FP7 project, under the theme of Technology-enhanced learning.
It is a large-scale pilot involving up to 1,000 classrooms focused on Learning in the 21st Century and the design of the future classroom.
iTEC produces meaningful pedagogical scenarios (assisted by semantic web technology) for the future classroom and, from these, derives learning activities and new approaches to assessment that engage teachers, learners and stakeholders outside the school. These are then tested and evaluated in the largest pan-European validation with schools yet undertaken. The iTEC technology approach will make the technical components, (people, tools, services and content) required by the scenarios, interoperable and discoverable, so that teachers can more easily select and combine relevant components tailored to the future classroom scenario of their choice. This is in line with current trends in which teachers can choose from a wide variety of loosely coupled tools and where interactive whiteboards and other interactive, multi-touch technologies may be acting as a 'gateway' for teachers to start exploring the further use of digital technologies in their classrooms.
