ITTE is an association of teacher educators who share an interest in improving learning through the application of digital technology in teaching and through the effective teaching of ICT as a subject. Our concerns include: the pedagogical application of digital technology by all teachers; developing the teaching of computing and digital capability; and the effective use of digital technology in teacher education itself.
We are an independent organisation with a membership drawn from Higher Education institutions, schools, colleges and supporting organisations. Our services include an annual conference, an academic journal, a newsletter, a website containing a variety of tools and resources, induction for new tutors, and support for members’ research activities.
Through these services, we encourage and support collaboration between organisations and individuals in developing good practice and carrying out research, and we support the dissemination of the results of these activities nationally and internationally through conferences, journals and books.
We liaise with government bodies and other associations in order to promote ICT in teacher education – both pre-service and CPD – as a key element in the improvement of educational outcomes.
