Smart  Schools = Smart Economy –

This is the Report of the ICT in Schools Joint Advisory Group to the Minister for Education and Science. The Advisory Group’s vision is that Ireland will have an education system that equips our young people with the critical skills to play an active role in the 21st century’s economy. The enabling drivers for a digital learning environment are:

➤ An educational technology vision that is led from the top (ie, Department of Education and Science), but owned and effectively managed throughout the system, whereby school-based innovation in the use of ICT is financed, assisted and encouraged;

➤ A high standard of reliable technology that is deployed effectively in all primary and post-primary schools;

➤ A rich source of digital content that supports the curriculum at primary and post- primary levels;

➤ Digitally-literate teachers
