Sampson 14 Nov 2014 Advanced Digital Systems and Services for Education and Learning (ASK) 11/32  Millions of Euros / USA $ have been spent all over the world for purchasing and installing technologies in schools – huge investments in infrastructure  However, limited investments have been planned and implemented in systematically developing and assessing the essential digital competences for school teachers and leaders – limited investments in human resources  This has led to limited educational added-value and transformative impact at school education …
