Regular computer users perform better in key school subjects, OECD study shows

 

18/01/2006 - School students who are established computer users tend to perform better in key school subjects than those with limited experience or a lack of confidence in their ability to perform basic computer functions, according to a new OECD report.

The study “Are students ready for a technology-rich world?”, to be published on Tuesday 24 January, provides the first internationally comparative data in this area. Its main conclusions will be presented at a media briefing by Andreas Schleicher, Head of the OECD’s Education Indicators and Analysis Division, at OECD headquarters on Monday 23 January at 11.00 a.m.

To register for the briefing and/or obtain a copy of the study under embargo, please contact the OECD’s Media Division  (tel. 33 1 45 24 97 00).
