Feature: The use of IT in elementary schools

Published on January 21st, 2005


Front page of Computerworld on January 21st, 2005

In 2004, a questionnaire on the educational levels of elementary school children in Europe, showed that Danish kids were not nearly as well educated as our neighbours. After the publication of these results, there was a public debate on how we should improve the overal level. This feature was my contribution to the debate.

My argument was that we should use new and cost effective IT-platforms like in our existing classes like Danish or Math, instead of making it a new subject in itself.

The feature was published in the weekly it newspaper Computerworld in January 2005.
