How can UNESCO help to provide teacher trainers, teachers and other educators with access to high-quality digital resources?

UNESCO Bangkok produced seven CD-ROMs, in a series of quality resources for the ICT in Education Teacher Training Project in the Asia-Pacific Region. One objective of this project was to develop a set of materials that will be useful to Teacher Education Institutions (TEIs) in training teachers to integrate ICT in their pedagogy. However, anybody involved in education can make good use of the resources presented on the CDs.

The CD-ROMs are the following:
