Technology is leading the world through rapid chages:
globalization, knowledge society, participation in social
networks…
New basic skills are required to face the 21st
century.
Today’s youth have new cognitive skills:
they are the digital natives.
The school we all know, which was conceived for
other times and students, faces one of its
greatest transformation challenges.
Is Information Technology in Education the
answer to this challenge?
There is no concensus on the impact
digital technologies have on the students’
learning.
 Despite that, new technologies invade
everything, even schools, and are here to
stay.
 How do we harness them to improve the
quality of education?
 Can technology improve or add value to
the processes which impact the quality of
education?


students (and teachers)
Enhance students’ motivation and participation (absenteeism
reduction, etc.)
Improve teaching, leadership, management and decision
making.
Improve students’ “economic viability” by improving some of
the skills related to future greater productivity at work.
Expand learning opportunities, overcoming the geographical
constraints
Improve students’ curricular learning as a consequence of
better classroom conditions and resources or as a
consequence of a deep transformation in pedagogical
models.
Develop new skills, the so-called students’ “basic 21st
century skills”
Policies on Information Technology in Education are a
fundamental part of each country’s education policies.
