ICTs for Learning: An Overview of Systemic Initiatives in the Australian States and Territories
Finger, Glenn; Trinidad, Sue
Australian Educational Computing, v17 n2 p3-14 Nov 2002
This article provides an overview of Systemic Initiatives in the Australian States and Territories. This updated overview acknowledges the help and information provided by key contacts whom the authors contacted from each of the Australian State and Territory government education systems. In addition, the role of the Ministerial Council for Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs (MCEETYA) Information and Communication Technologies Taskforce in providing a mechanism for sharing information was highlighted as this overview draws heavily upon and acknowledges the excellent summaries contained in the recent MCEETYA report "Learning in an online world: the school education action plan for the information economy Progress report 2002" (MCEETYA Information Communication Technologies in Schools Taskforce, 2002). The 122 page report provides a National report, reports from all Australian States and Territories, reports from the National Catholic Education Commission, National Council of Independent Schools' Associations, and from New Zealand. The authors believe that the value of the work undertaken in leading to that progress report cannot be underestimated and there is now an effective process for ongoing monitoring and reporting of systemic ICT initiatives.
