International Convention of The Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) location:Orlando, Florida, USA date:4-8 November 2008
An increased interest has been shown in information and communication technology (ICT) usage of teachers and students. Different ICT monitors have been constructed (e.g. Unesco, 2006). These monitors aim at getting insight in ICT usage and ICT integration in education over a large group of schools, teachers and students. In this monitors ICT is often replaced by the word 'computer'. The question addressed in this contribution is whether 'computer' is a good proxy for ICT.
