Emitt Project

This project examine ways of increasing usage of ICT to enhance more varied approaches to teaching and learning. E-mitt will evaluate the extent to which the blend of Multiple Intelligences and ICT will ensure the development of a wider range of "intelligences" in students and how it will increase student motivation, learning and interest.
