iTEC (Innovative Technologies for an Engaging Classroom) was a four-year research and development project funded by the European Commission involving 26 partners: ministries of education (MoEs), technology providers and research organisations. iTEC aimed to transform and scale-up the use of technology in teaching and learning in primary and secondary education.Through iTEC, educational tools and resources were piloted in 2653 classrooms with around 50,000 students across 20 European countries.
The resulting iTEC approach develops Future Classroom Scenarios (narratives of classroom innovation), engaging Learning Activities (descriptions of discrete activities) using innovative digital pedagogies and inspiring Learning Stories (exemplifying sequences of Learning Activities). These resources support teachers to rethink and develop their pedagogical practices, providing detailed examples of how learning and teaching could be more student-centred, authentic and engaging using digital tools.
This report synthesises the evidence of the impact of iTEC on learners and teachers, and the potential of the iTEC approach for system change, looking at:
• iTEC processes, tools and resources (case studies, user/teacher surveys, focus groups);
• Classroom perspectives (case studies, teacher/learner surveys);
• National perspectives (case studies).
