    This paper complements the above

    “It examines data from Vital,
    a professional development programme in England
    which aims to help teachers use ICT to add value
    to lessons and find new ways
    to engage their pupils.

    It focuses on Vital’s model of CPD which includes
    ‘TeachMeets’ and ‘TeachShares’.

    Both are analysed to explore teachers’
    participation in, design of and responses
    to collaborative ICT CPD.”
