Informe OCDE: "ICT and Initial Teacher Education. National Policies"

This working paper aims to give an overview of the national policies that exist in the field of ICT and initial teacher education. Information on this topic was initially gathered via a survey, in the form of a country questionnaire, which was conducted as part of the analytical strand of the OECD study entitled "ICT and Initial Teacher Education". In addition, desk research was conducted for 31 OECD countries. All of this work has been carried out under the auspices of the New Millennium Learners project. Responses to the survey were received from the following countries: Austria, Australia, Belgium (Flanders), Chile, Denmark, Finland, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

The first part of this report presents a comparison of national policies by classifying each of them in one of these three categories:

  • Category 1: Lack of relevant information concerning ICT and initial teacher education.
  • Category 2: Developing awareness of the stakes of ICT and initial teacher education.
  • Category 3: Inclusion of ICT in initial teacher education at several levels.

The second part of this report proposes a complementary analysis of these result by first discussing some limits to the initial broad classification of countries in these categories and then presenting key elements of comparison in order to estimate the level of coherence of these policies.
