ICT@Europe.edu: Information and Communication Technology in European Education Systems. Survey 4.
EURYDICE European Unit, Brussels (Belgium).
This report presents the results of a survey conducted by EURYDICE of 30 countries (i.e., the 15 European Union [EU] member states, the 3 European Free Trade Association/European Economic Area countries, and the 12 pre-accession countries) that reviewed progress in incorporating information and communication technology (ICT) into national education systems. The survey covers the incorporation of ICT into education systems at all levels, including initial and inservice teacher training, and sets out to answer the following questions: (1) What are the aims and strategies underlying policies to introduce ICT into education? (2) What are the specific measures implemented (e.g., national initiatives, action plans, pilot projects, etc.)? (3) How is responsibility for ICT in education shared among the various administrative levels? and (4) What public/private partnerships have been established or are planned in order to implement these initiatives on a broad scale? The report covers three areas of concern: a survey of aspects of the debate on how ICT should be brought into education, together with a review of EU initiatives in this area; a summary of types of action implemented in the 30 countries; and separate reports based on the replies of each country to the four questions above.
