The first program ICT for Pedagogical Development held its regional phase in Phnom Penh, Combodia during November 2012. It was a succesful meeting in a welcoming country. A number of interesting study visits were made, and all the change projects were discussed and scrutinized by the participants. The ”Unconference Session” was a great success, and a number of interesting subjects were covered in smaller groups.
The program was opened by Her Excellency Dr Phoeurng Sackona from the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MoEYS) and by Karl-Anders Larsson from the Swedish Embassy in Phnom Penh.
