ITE Forum

Welcome to the ITEForum, a platform for universities, teacher training institutes, companies, policy-makers and other education bodies to inspire change in Initial Training Education (ITE)

An initiative of the ITELab project, the Forum aims to facilitate knowledge-sharing between universities, industry and policy-makers working in ITE on innovative approaches and resources related to the pedagogical use of ICT. Follow the project on Twitter: #ITELab_eu.
