OECD report on Italian Strategy for Digital Schools - IWB as Trojan horse | TELT | Scoop.it

"The Italian Ministry of Education launched in 2007 a National Plan for Digital Schools (Piano Nazionale Scuola Digitale) to mainstream Information Communication Technology (ICT) in Italian classrooms and use technology as a catalyser of innovation in Italian education, hopefully conducing to new teaching practices, new models of school organisation, new products and tools to support quality teaching. The Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research asked the OECD to review its Plan from an international perspective and to suggest improvements."

 

This OECD report shows how the Italian authorities have focused on the IWB as a vector for change (Trojan horse) and recommends concentrating on innovative teachers and classes to fuel further change.
