PL ---- PLENARY 4: IT IN NORWEGIAN EDUCATION

Description: In a unique and ambitious undertaking, Norway is creating a national plan to extend the use of instructional technology to all learners on all levels throughout the education system in Norway. The recent history of IT in Norway, and the goals of the next few years, will represent a fascinating model for many nations, states, and provinces as the new plans and policies are implemented in Norway.

Norway started to introduce IT in the educational system in the early eighties. It is, however, only after recent curriculum reforms in upper secondary education in 1994 and in primary and secondary education in 1997 that IT has been systematically integrated in the national curriculum for the school system. The challenge is now to extend the use of IT to all learners on all levels in the Norwegian educational system. For that purpose the government has developed systematic strategies and a national plan for the implementation of the new policies.

In higher and distance education, and in research and development work, Norway has been in the forefront of development in several areas. Norway is now implementing a rapid expansion of higher education in a situation where emphasis is on modernizing higher education by implementing new tools in learning and research, and implementation of parallel strategies of creating synergies between education and industry.

Four key strategists and architects of the Norwegian IT Plan will present key aspects.
