ESCORCIA-OYOLA, Ludmila  and  JAIMES DE TRIVINO, Clara. Trends in ITC Use in a School Context, Based on Teachers' Experiences. educ.educ. [online]. 2015, vol.18, n.1, pp.137-152. ISSN 0123-1294.

The results of a study on the important experiences that characterize the use of ICT in a school context are presented in this article. The general objective is to identify the extent to which ICT is used for educational purposes in meaningful classroom projects proposed by teachers, as part of the "Computers to Educate" program and its strategy for learning and access to educational appropriation of ICT. A scale showing the different ICT uses and educational levels was developed to this end. Methodologically speaking, this was a qualitative - descriptive documentary study that required collecting and analyzing information through categories of ICT use and levels of appropriation. The findings show teachers employ ICT as a means of information and communication, but ICT use in learning is limited. Therefore, in conclusion, it is recommended that teacher training programs be set up, based on curriculum redesign to include ICT, and learning networks be constructed on the basis of important experiences that include the use of these media in education.
