iTEC (Innovative Technologies for Engaging Classrooms)

iTEC is a major EU-funded project in which European Schoolnet is working with education ministries, technology providers and research organisations to bring about transformation in learning and teaching through the strategic application of learning technology.

With 27 project partners, including 14 Ministries of Education, and funding of €9.45 million from the European Commission’s FP7 programme, iTEC is the largest and most strategic project yet undertaken by European Schoolnet.

iTEC explores the fundamental question of how technology can be used effectively and successfully by both learners and teachers and is seeking to define the nature of the future classroom. The project brings together education policy makers together with some of the key learning technology providers and experts from leading research organisations and universities.
