Abstract

By constitution, all schools in the Dutch education system (public and private) are funded by the Government provided that they meet the standards of quality set by the Ministry of Education and Sciences. Within the framework of these standards, schools are free to organize their teaching and learning processes. The introduction of new technologies in education began in 1982 with stimulation policies that launched several promotional programs over four time periods until 1992. Since 1993, the Dutch government has considered new technologies a regular part of educational practice.
