SINGAPORE: Teachers now have a one-stop centre to collaborate on projects using infocomm technology.

Called the eduLab@AST, it will work with various school clusters to spread the use of innovative practices by showcasing pilot projects in schools.

It is located at the Academy of Singapore Teachers.

New technology will also be channelled to these schools to test-bed new or emerging solutions.

And in turn, these experiences will be shared with other schools through the lab.

This was announced at the opening ceremony of the International Conference on Teaching and Learning with Technology (iCTLT) 2012.
