ICT in Teacher Education: Policy, Open Educational Resources and Partnership

The UNESCO Institute for Information Technologies in Education (IITE) was established by the General Conference of UNESCO in 1997 as the Organization’s unique focal point for the promotion of information and communication technologies (ICT) in education. Since then the Institute’s prime objective has been to assist UNESCO Member States in support to policy making and national capacity building in regard to the effective ICT integration into educational systems and teaching processes. The Institute endeavors to narrow the digital knowledge divide through enabling access to information, fostering scientific research, sharing educational practic- es and facilitating self-education, in order to provide equal access to life- long learning for all and to ensure social inclusion of vulnerable groups of population.

The International Conference IITE-2010 “ICT in Teacher Education: Policy, Open Educational Resources and Partnership” was organized by the UNESCO IITE and the UNESCO Moscow Office in close cooperation with the Herzen State Pedagogical University of Russia, St. Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation, State University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics, and with support of CISCO. The Conference took place on 15–16 November 2010 in St. Petersburg, Russian Federation. Over 120 participants from more than 20 countries attended the event. It became an intellectual platform for open dialogue between policy makers, teachers, practitioners, experts from public and private sec- tors, and representatives of educational, scientific and professional institu- tions and organizations.
