Abstract
iTeach contest works is the display window of educational technology students’ ability of instruction design, computer programming, software UI, and so on. It can also give out lots of information about China educational technology curriculum implement status, and students training focuses. The analysis of iTeach contest works is not only an inspection of the training quality of educational technology students, it’s also a process of communication of training experience of educational technology students. The article takes 196 educational technology students’ works from 2017 annual contest as samples, and conducts quantitative statistics from six aspects, including qualifications of contestants, work types, target users, distribution types and authoring tools. The analysis of the works shows there are many fresh work topics, creatively used technologies, specific information technology application in the contest works. The statistics also reveal some points should be paid attention to during the course of educational technology student development. Lastly, based on contest experts' interview, the article puts forward some suggestions for educational technology student training, including the reflection of curriculum structure, the construction of authentic curriculum resources, the implementation of curriculum quality standards, the integration of practical teaching system and scientific research feeding back teaching.
