In Estonia, 12 700 teachers gain ICT skills

The ESF project ‘Learning Tiger 2008-2013’, which ended in December 2012, has provided ICT training to 12 700 teachers, headmasters and other educators – over 60% of all teaching staff in Estonia.

Importantly, this included 14 courses on integrating ICT into learning and teaching processes, as studies show that IT makes teaching easier and improves learning motivation among students.

As proof of success, a survey of participants held in 2013 shows that the number of teachers actively using technology in preparing and holding classes equals the number of teachers who took part in the training programme.
