The objective of the Survey of Schools: ICT in Education is to benchmark progress in the EU27, Iceland, Norway, Croatia and Turkey in ICT in education by surveying students, head teachers and teachers on the availability and use, including opinions and attitudes, of ICT in schools, thus contributing to the development of updated, relevant and efficient indicators as well as to the establishment of a long-term and continuous monitoring system on ICT access, use and impact.

The survey of schools is one of a series within the European Union's cross-sector benchmarking activities comparing national progress to i2010 and EU2020 goals. It is the first Europe-wide survey of schools' ICT for six years, following Europe 2002 and EU2005 surveys.

The Survey was funded by the European Commission Information Society and Media Directorate General. It was a partnership between European Schoolnet and the Service d’Approches Quantitatives des faits éducatifs in the Department of Education of the University of Liège.

The focus of the study is on developing indicators and gathering and analysing data on students’ use, competence, and attitudes to ICT. Teacher and school level factors were investigated as regards their impact on students. The main areas of investigation were: 

  • Students' digital competence and attitudes towards ICT
  • Students' ICT use in /out of classroom
  • Teachers' professional ICT use in/out of classroom
  • Teachers’ attitudes towards pedagogical ICT use
  • School infrastructure, connectivity and ICT access
  • School leadership in ICT and ICT for pedagogy
