  ICTs in Education 
  A web portal is defined, according to the UNESCO Bangkok Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education, as a one-stop knowledge shop of extensive information resources produced from all sources all over the world that can be accessed with no effort at one location.  
  It provides a gateway or entry point to various sources and resources dealing with a specific topic.

In the context of this definition of a web portal, the present document contains content proposed for a section of the Education sub-portal to be developed as part of UNESCO's Knowledge Portal, specifically that section dealing with teacher education and information and communication technologies or ICT.

A comprehensive search of the Internet shows that there are many hundreds, even thousands, of websites that might be included in a web portal on teacher education and ICT, and so in proposing content for inclusion, inevitably a strict selection has needed to be made. At the same time, it is anticipated that further content for potential inclusion is likely to be forthcoming from UNESCO Member States once the Education portal becomes operational. The content proposed here is therefore best considered as a starting point.

This introduction describes the framework adopted for the organization of the content proposed and the criteria applied for selection.
