Are there computers in the classroom? Does it matter? Students, Computers and Learning:
Making the Connection examines how students’ access to and use of information and
communication technology (ICT) devices has evolved in recent years, and explores how
education systems and schools are integrating ICT into students’ learning experiences.
Based on results from PISA 2012, the report discusses differences in access to and
use of ICT – what are collectively known as the “digital divide” – that are related
to students’ socio-economic status, gender, geographic location, and the school a
child attends. The report highlights the importance of bolstering students’ ability
to navigate through digital texts. It also examines the relationship among computer
access in schools, computer use in classrooms, and performance in the PISA assessment.
As the report makes clear, all students first need to be equipped with basic literacy
and numeracy skills so that they can participate fully in the hyper-connected, digitised
societies of the 21st century.
