Universities and companies will come together in the ITELab Forum to engage with Ministries of Education, national ICT agencies, regional education authorities and other stakeholders (participating as Associate Partners) to address the issues of how student teachers currently receive training on the pedagogical use of ICT, and the mainstreaming of innovative pedagogical practice that involves ICT.
The new open source course modules developed within this project will benefit all ITE educators across Europe. The modules will also be complemented by an innovative MOOC for student teachers. The content will be available in English and translated into Italian, Portuguese and Norwegian in the project. ITELab will particularly provide higher education institutions with recommendations to support innovation within ITE in terms of how it addresses technology-enhanced learning, including recommendations related to the competences that teacher educators themselves will require to prepare student teachers to enter 21st century classrooms.
