ASPnet projects on the use of ICT in education
Over 9,000 schools in 180 countries are members of the UNESCO Associated Schools network (ASPnet) (as of November 2010). Many of these schools pilot ICT in exchange programmes that link schools of different countries and continents. In addition, some flagship projects at the international level aim at the effective use of ICT to improve quality education.
