Information Strategy for Education and Research, 2000-2004 Implementation Plan.
Ministry of Education, Helsinki (Finland).
In the spring of 1999, the Finnish Ministry of Education devised an information strategy for the period of 2000-2004. This is the second of its kind. The first strategy had been devised to steer national information society development in the fields of education and research from 1995 onwards. The new strategy has aroused a great deal of interest in Finland's foreign colleagues. This Implementation Plan outlines several projects that are part of the new information strategy. For each project outlined, a contact person (or persons) with their email address for additional information. The following projects are described: Citizenship Skills in the Information Society; three-step OPE.FI project for training teaching personnel; training for information industry and digital communication professionals; the virtual university; the virtual school; research and development relating to learning environments; content production; information society structures development; and finally, evaluation of the implementation and impact of the new information strategy.
