iTEC (Innovative Technologies for Engaging Classrooms) is a four-year project co-ordinated by European Schoolnet aimed at transforming the way that technology is used in teaching and learning. With funding of €9.45 million from the European Commission's FP7 programme, it involves 26 project partners including education ministries, technology providers and research organisations. This presentation will introduce the project; detail the process for the creation of educational scenarios intended to inspire changes in teachers' practices; and share the results of the evaluation.
