This experience implies a great implementation of ICT (and a lot of money), in order to change the situation for schools in the inner city of Oslo. Three schools (one primary school, one comprehensive school and one high school) received 20 million NOK (2.422.920 Euro) to implement ICT in a great scale.

ICT in Multicultural Schools, Inner City Oslo East was a three-year plan at Vahl Primary School, Jordal Lower Secondary School and Elvebakken Upper Secondary School. The project was initiated by the Ministry of Education and Research in partnership with the Oslo Municipal Education Department, and ended in 2003.

The ITU (Network for IT Research and Competente in Education of the University of Oslo) has guided and advised the plan of implementation of ICT in the schools: it offered training and information to school administrators, project managers and the central project manager. In addition to ongoing guidance and advice, guidance measures have also been implemented aimed at teachers and pupils through ITU’s team of developers and through a pedagogical newsletter. ITU also coordinates external researchers in connection with the evaluation of the project.
