The results are expected soon. Prof. Ronnie Karsenty from WIS is the responsible academic for this task.
  • A survey within the iTEM consortium to identify the strategies and technologies are used along with Math teaching. The survey will help to shape a more efficient strategy and incorporate other ICT tools than the current one. Responsible partner for this task is UMIT from Austria and Dr. Elske Ammenwerh & Dr. Werner Hackl. The survey will be completed after the 1st Intensive Course in Aalborg (October 2019). The report with the final results will be released by December 2019
