2015 ATEE Award in Innovative use of ICT in Education sponsored by ROUTLEDGE

09 October 2015 - ATEE

The ATEE Award in Innovative use of ICT in Education has been established to recognize and encourage outstanding education programs that have contributed to enhancing student learning by effectively and innovatively integrating technology supported learning into the school curriculum and subject teaching, and thereby promote enquiry-based cooperative and collaborative learning using ICT. This award also aims to recognize school’s contribution to overall quality of ICT based education.
The successful submission will be awarded 600 euros, provided by the sponsor ROUTLEDGE. The ATEE Treasury will inform the winner/s of the refund policy. In the case of a collaboration of school teachers, the school is to decide how the award is to be distributed. It is suggested that the award should be used to contribute to the further development of ICT in the school. The ATEE Treasury will inform the winner/s of the refund policy.
