Synopsis

The two main drivers for the ICT Centre are the use of ICT for improving the quality of education and improving learning outcomes and strategies for kindergarten, primary, secondary and teacher training.

 

The centre produces online guides for educators and offers a series of online tools and services. These services cover a wide range of topics that educate students about careers, practice math exams, safety decisions when using media, copyright, democracy, Sami languages, collaboration for projects across national borders, learner resources for personalisation, data regulation information, entrepreneurial teaching methods, and digital literacy,

 

The centre has also produced services and products for the purposes of monitoring schools. For example, it has carried out a longitudinal study on the digital skills of 7th graders, 9th graders, and upper secondary students. The centre has self-assessment for school managers on digital competence, self-assessment for teachers connecting them with professional development modules, and a national assessment on digital skills for all 8th graders.

 

The project also has developed pedagogical scenarios that were run in over 1,000 schools coordinated by Schoolnet. The ICT Centre ran a blog so that schools could contribute stories about everyday use of ICT.
