ICT in Teacher Education

This publication contains a collection of examples of "ICT in Teacher Education" projects from the Asia-Pacific region. In some cases the objective of the project was to raise the capacity of teachers to utilize ICT in teaching while in others the objective was to utilize ICT tools to improve teacher education.

While these projects may not always have been successful and are not necessarily examples of "best practice", an examination of such projects offers insights into the process of educating teachers to integrate ICT into education and the process of utilizing ICT tools for training teachers.

In addition, these projects provide information about the issues and obstacles that are often faced in ICT-enhanced teacher education in the region. This information will be useful to education planners, teachers, educators and researchers, particularly those in the Asia-Pacific region.

The case studies were compiled within the framework of the "Training and Professional Development of Teachers and Other Facilitators for Effective Use of ICT in Improving Teaching and Learning" project, which was implemented between 2003 and 2007 by the UNESCO Asia-Pacific Programme of Educational Innovation for Development (APEID), with the support of Japanese Funds-in-Trust (JFIT).
