In this paper we will reflect on how diffusion of information- and communication technology, can be real in Swedish teacher education. We will describe how the Bologna process affects the work with systematic implementation of ICT and how the CDIO Initiative is used as a framework for the development of the LIKA matrix. The LIKA project was launched at the beginning of 2006 and is a six year collaboration project, between four teacher education colleges. The project is financed by the Swedish Knowledge Foundation and the participating institutions. LIKA stands for the processes of Learning, Information, Communication and Administration, which requires digital competences in order to carry out everyday professional teaching and learning activities.
