Study visit of Canadian Delegation to The NetherlandsFocus on ICT in Education   April 7 – April 13,  2002 
From April 7th until April 13th the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, Directorate ICT, invited a Canadian Delegation to the Program “Connecting Learners”. EuroSchool, ICT&E and the KPC Group were asked to organize the program “Connecting Learners” in the Netherlands.”Connecting Learners” results from the Memorandum of Understanding, an agreement on co-operation between The Netherlands and Canada which was signed last June 2001 between Canada’s Minister of Industry Brian Tobin and Minister Loek Hermans.  Together Canada and the Netherlands intend to work on the development of software and on high-tech educational projects, including the linking of schools over the internet. The co-operation must lead to more contacts between Dutch and Canadian schools.During their stay the Canadian Delegation will be visiting some schools that are using ICT in education to improve the learning process. Canadian experts will be meeting ICT-minded people – teachers, managers, policy makers – who want to make a difference. People who have many different ideas and who found their own way to integrate ICT in education.The Netherlands also want to learn from Canadian experiences. Canada is a precursor in the field of ICT in education and pre-eminently a country from which we can obtain ideas and where we can see, in actual practice, which solutions there are for a successful implementation of ICT in education. That’s why Canadian experts will be presenting their views and practices during several occasions at the KIC 2002 manifestation and on April 9 and 10.
