2013-2014 VTÉ's Labs
For the first time, Vitrine technologie-éducation (VTÉ) surveyed members of the Anglophone network about emerging technology for pedagogical use they are most interested in.
Based on this online survey, VTÉ is thrilled to announce its first 2013-2014 season VTÉ Labs program in English. For those of you who are not familiar with our laboratory concept, please visit our "How does-it work?" section.
Below, you will find the list of Labs as well as global orientations we will explore with you all along this season.
