Abstract

Government Departments of Education in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland emphasise the need to integrate ICT into the schools' curriculum. The training of teachers and student teachers is vital to the success of this integration. This paper reports on the North South ICT Project which was set up to contribute to these aims by involving teacher training in ICT in several areas of the curricula on both sides of the Irish border. The paper also reports on the Project's efforts to promote mutual understanding through ICT between pupils from two divided communities in Northern Ireland and pupils in the Republic of Ireland.
