This is the report mentioned in the blog earlier this week–remember the Globe and Mail article? Read on…

The ICTSS collected information from principals to assess connectivity and information and communications technologies (ICT) integration in elementary and secondary schools in Canada.

The survey was conducted in October 2003, that is during the current school year, by Statistics Canada, in partnership with Industry Canada’s SchoolNet program, the sponsor. SchoolNet works with learning partners – provincial and territorial governments, education associations, school boards, schools, teachers and students – to increase access to, and integration of, information and communications technologies (ICT) into the learning environment. Support to the survey initiative has also been provided by Library and Archives Canada.

This report, which presents the first results of the survey, is based on data collected from nearly 6,700 elementary and secondary schools.
