Associations, Federations and Special Interest Groups

Aware of the importance of international cooperation for the advancement of science, INSTICC works closely together with several other national and international associations and is proud to welcome them as partners in its activities or to arrange initiatives in cooperation with them.

While several forms of partnership are welcome, INSTICC places special value in "Technical Co-Sponsorships", by means of which both associations support each other from a scientific perspective for their mutual benefit. Additionally, in this case, members of partner organizations benefit from the same registration conditions as INSTICC members.





Current Institutional Partners:

Istituto per le Tecnologie Didattiche (ITD)


The Istituto per le Tecnologie Didattiche (ITD) is one of the research institutes of the Italian National Research Council. The institute is devoted to the study of educational innovation brought about through the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). The research undertaken focuses on:
- the integration of ICT in various educational settings (school, university, business);
- issues related to different disciplines and themes (humanities, sciences, environmental education, etc.)
- learning issues of particular social significance (disability, learning difficulties, social disadvantage, intercultural issues, etc.)
- the study of technological innovation as a learning resource.
The main areas of reference for the Institute's research work are the cognitive sciences, computer science and the pedagogy of the various disciplines.
ITD is the only public scientific institute in Italy entirely devoted to studying how ICT-based tools and methods can innovate learning and teaching processes. The institute’s mission is to perform research studies and technology transfer activities focusing on: ICT as a resource for teaching/learning processes; innovative approaches to the design, management and assessment of learning environments; study of new educational needs and opportunities brought about by ICT.
