Reinforcing In-Service Teachers Education via ICT ARTICLE

Journal on School Educational Technology Volume 8, Number 1, ISSN 0973-2217

Abstract

Earlier educational models have not managed to take into account novel contextual and mobile methods of learning with the advances in technology-mediated learning. The article firstly reports an educational approach, namely, future innovative in-service teacher education in Europe (ICE-ED). This project was supported by the European Union Comenius fund and coordinated by the University of Iceland. The ICE-ED project is focused on educational use of information and communication technologies (ICTs), particularly with the improvement and dissemination of latest pedagogical strategies for open and distance learning through in-service teacher education (ICE-ED) in schools across Europe (The ICE-ED website 2012). The project employs the on-line managed learning environment platform BSCW as a Computer Supportive Communication Learning instrument to make possible the participants collaboration. It is a nonstop meeting setting for them, a steady support to their work and at the same time an online library of the entire project educational material on which all the activities take place.
