Computers in Schools – Ireland decades behind – Are we surprised?

There are just over one computers per 10 pupils in Ireland compared to 3 computers per 10 students in most first world countries.

From RTE:

The study found that around 90% of Irish students have access to computers at school. But only 25% of Irish students say they use a computer in school regularly, compared to around 70% in the UK.

It was also found that Ireland is among a group of countries which show the least positive attitudes among students towards computers.

More details from the OECD.
