Abstract [en]

The European eLearning Forum for Education (ELFE) is a project initiated by the ETUCE (European Trade Union Committee on Education). An important objective of the project has been to analyse good experiences in different countries implementing the use of ICT in their education systems. This objective has been broken down in seven operational research questions.Three innovative schools in each of six different European countries (Denmark, UK, Germany, Norway, Portugal and Sweden) were selected. To address the research questions the following data were needed from the participating schools: school background data, data on the ICT infrastructure and use (both hardware and software). To assure validity in each school the data from three perspectives were needed: school management, teachers and students. Data were collected in various ways: questionnaires on school �facts and figures�, interviews of respondents from various perspectives using interview checklists, walking around in the school and school documents.A number of factors which seem to influence the successful implementation of ICT could be identified: -good infrastructure and adequate support; -a clear vision, policy and strategy on what they want to accomplish when they implement ICT supported teaching and learning; -a principal or school leadership that is supportive and monitors the processes of change; -ICT become part of the school�s culture (although not yet fully realized in all schools); -introduction of learning and communication platforms; -a policy on staff development (although not yet fully realised in all schools); -support from national, regional or local authorities who have developed policies on using ICT in education and provide schools (some) financial means; and -parents and (in a number of cases) local communities supporting developments.
