The Irish Government’s digital strategy for schools for the next five years includes a demand for good digital skills among teachers. From this prerequisite ICT should be integrated in all teacher education. Seán Ó Foghlú, secretary general of the Department of Education and Skills said as a comment to the OECD PISA assessment for digital skills: “There is more to learning obviously than literacy and numeracy.” (quoted in Irish Times). Teacher’s can be demanded to show that they have the required digital skills in order to meet the digital strategy’s requirements.
