The fifth installment of the International Teachers' Conference was co-organised from 25 to 29 September 2005 with Beijing Jingshan School and supported by the Ministry of Education, China and the European Commission.

The four-day Conference in Beijing gathered together a total of 80 high school teachers and educators from 23 ASEM countries in Asia and Europe to initiate and/or participate in collaborative ICT projects.

A total of nine new projects were endorsed at the conclusion of the Conference, and three out of five AEC Projects completed from the last AEC International Teachers' Conference in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, in September/October 2004 received much support to be continued.

The 12 AEC Projects from the 5th International Teachers' Conference are:

1. Body Language in Asia and Europe
2. Cultural Fiction
3. Eco-Cultural Tourism
4. Foodfest@VirtualHomestay
5. Global Music Composition
6. Local Traditions and Ceremonies
7. Mastering Media
8. Mosaic
9. Ten In One
10. Cultural Kaleidoscope 2006
11. Peace Project – Phase 3
12. The World in a Book

In recognition of their outstanding contributions to the objectives of the AEC, AEC Awards, comprising a cash grant of USD2,500 were awarded to three AEC Project Groups, namely, “Cultural Kaleidoscope 2005”, “The World in a Book” and "Utopia@VirtualHomestay” . They were among the 13 AEC Project Groups that
were established at the conclusion of the Schleswig-Holstein Conference in 2004.
The AEC Award would be used either to further develop the AEC Project or to
develop a new project.

The co-ordinators of the three existing AEC project Groups, “Cultural Kaleidoscope 2005”, “Peace Project” and “The World in a Book” would be further developed to incorporate more interesting themes and topics to involve more students.
