Digital Maturity Model2eLearningworld News from Nordic Countries

Last week eLearningworld News reported about the Finnish and Swedish Governments’ new strategies in the digitalisation of schools. While Sweden, Finland and Denmark are on almost the same level when it comes to access to computers in school, the level of use of digital tools in the teaching is generally very different. While the Danish government has been funding teacher-training and digital learning material the passed ten years, Finland is now investing €300 million on teacher-training and digital learning materials, while Sweden still struggles to start to implement a digital strategy for schools. As an example, while Danish schools in general have €50 per year to buy digital learning material for each student/pupil, Swedish schools have €3. The digital maturity model gives a rather clear image of the differences. Source: eLearningworld News and Sydsvenskan
