The emergence of the information age has brought to the fore, the important role that information, knowledge and technology can play in facilitating socio-economic development. The effective use of information and knowledge is becoming the most critical factor for rapid economic growth and wealth creation, and for improving socio-economic well-being. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) should be integrated within all the learning activities of the school across all subjects. Targets for students’ use of ICT relate to the usage of various ICT tools, broader issues associated with assessing information using these tools, and other management skills. As ICT is an important element in most subjects, ICT-related skills are assessed through traditional school subjects. The use of ICT in education can play a crucial role in providing new and innovative forms of support to teachers, students, and the learning process more broadly. With globalization, the information revolution, and increasing demands for a highly skilled workforce, nations are increasingly prioritizing education. The potential and promise of ICT use in education is clear: when implemented correctly, software in the classroom, for example, can allow students to learn at their own pace and tablets can help children develop important digital skills and computer know-how that they’ll need to succeed in our knowledge-based economy. The programme has been designed to incorporate Digital Competence, which cover basic education. The programme’s priority areas have been related to ICT infrastructure, competence development, research and development, digital teaching resources, curricula and working methods.
