ABSTRACT
This article describes the integration of ICT in the teacher training centres of Cambodia. It focuses on the collaboration between the Teacher Training Department of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (MoEYS) of Cambodia and VVOB (Flemish Association for Development Cooperation and Technical Assistance), which is aimed at improving ICT integration in pre-service teacher training. The article firstly provides an overview that outlines the major challenges the country is facing regarding ICT integration in education, and teacher training specifically. Then it will explain the strategy chosen to improve the quality of education, followed by a discussion of the concrete actions that were taken. While the integration is an ongoing process, some intermediate impacts and findings are discussed. This short paper concludes with a look at the challenges lying ahead.
