The promotion of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for learning is an objective of the Lifelong Learning Programme as a whole, and of the Comenius, Erasmus, Grundtvig and Leonardo programmes in particular. The ICT Key Activity complements these programmes by addressing ICT teaching and learning needs across two or more of those sectors.
Language learning projects that make use of new technologies are eligible under the ICT Key Activity. Among other advantages, ICT can stimulate students to learn, attract those who have dropped out of learning institutions and facilitate learning outside traditional school environments.
- projects aimed at improving ways to measure and assess the effectiveness of ICT in the field of education
- scenarios for connecting learning communities
Through ICT, stakeholders in education can build networks that will benefit learners and educational institutions. Networks are particularly important to schools and other organisations that increasingly rely on exchanges of experience and information.
