International Handbook

One of IITTL's most recognized works is the International Handbook of Information Technology in Primary and Secondary Education (IHITE). The two main questions that guide this International Handbook are: 
What is the potential of IT to improve K-12 education? 
How can the implementation of IT in K-12 educational practice be supported? 
This International Handbook seeks to provide researchers, policy-makers and practitioners with an integrated overview of the field. The second edition is scheduled for release in 2018. For more details and download information, please click here

The International Handbook series spawned 10 years of bi-annual EDUSummITs  where researchers, practitioners, and scholars  from around the world meet for three days to discuss urgent problems facing education systems around the world, with prospective technology-based solutions , and to advocate "Call to Action" fast-track solutions. EDUSummITs have been held in the Netherlands 2009), Paris (2011), Washington D.C. (2013), Bangkok (2015), Bulgaria (2017), and Canada (2019). 

The International Summit on Information and Communication Technologies in Education (EDUSummIT) 2023 is hosted by Kyoto University in Japan, and specifically by the LEAF Project led by Dr. Hiroaki Ogata. A core group of 5 faculty  from the Kyoto University LEAF Project delivered a panel presentation in person from the Learning Technologies Agora as part of the College of Information Discovery Series, while simultaneously broadcasting via zoom. More than 50 UNT faculty and researchers attended.
