This paper outlines the work of an Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in Initial Teacher Education (ITE) conference held in Dublin in October 2006. This was the ICT in Teacher Education workgroup’s second conference, having held its first conference in Armagh in November 2004 (see Austin and Conway, 2005), and builds on earlier cross-border collaboration on ICTs in education (Dissolving Boundaries project Austin, et al, 2003). The 2004 conference focused on ICTs in Teacher Education encompassing initial and early professional development. Based on participant interest and perceived need to address the challenges of embedding ICTs in Initial Teacher Education, the second conference focused on this aspect of ICTs in Teacher Education. An important context for the current debate on the the best uses of ICTs in ITE is that increased economic prosperity both North and South has facilitated investment in ICTs in education. As such, some searching questions need to be asked about how to allocate and appraise funding, resources and evaluate ICT integration in terms of key educational aspirations.
