The ICT division was founded in 2001 to focus on questions regarding the use of information and communication technology in educational research and practice. Research can vary from fundamental research aiming at theory development, applied research aiming at the development of guidelines for the use of ICT in education and applied research aiming at advice and policy making. Development activities can vary from development and action research to technology development to realise ICT applications in education. The division’s target group for activities consists of education experts and teacher researchers, as well as teachers, educational developers, teacher support, policy makers, consultants and students.


The division’s activities consist of:
• Contribution to the programming and organisation of the Educational Research Days (ORD) theme ‘ICT’ 
• Organisation of symposia, workshops and conferences
• Promoting research on the use of ICT in education
• Offer a broad platform for researchers and practitioners to discuss and solve problems regarding the use of ICT
