Design, construction and launch of a prototype center for teacher training 

The LabTD project started in 2004 and aimed to make available a teacher training centre in a school context to support and encourage teachers engaged in innovation and introduction of ICT as a current tool for school work and professional development.

The Lab is located inside the Don Milani  lower secondary school at Genova, Italy and is designed and furnished in order to meet the needs of various activities, i.e. courses, workshops, individual and group work. High level technological equipment – over thirty computers, mainly notebooks, intranet and internet (also wireless) connections, printers, video projectors, applications and educational software, visual presenter, satellite TV, etc., ensure a variety of services to teachers of the district such as hardware rent, use of the lab and resources for autonomous, individual or small groups activities. Moreover, LabTd features a Moodle-based communication platform – www.labtd.it/partecipa - to support communication  with and between users and to integrate face to face and online training and share and make available course material to a wider public.

After an experimental session under the guidance of ITD, since 2007 the Lab is run by a team of experienced teachers from Don Milani school that take advantage of ITD support for the design of formative activities.
