In a groundbreaking move to put in place internationally standardized methodologies and indicators to monitor the growing integration of information and communication technologies into education across countries, the UIS has released the Guide to Measuring Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in Education.

In addition to the UIS core set of indicators, this guide presents an expanded list to address a wide range of policy concerns in relation to the new paradigm of ICT-enhanced education service delivery. It will help to ensure consistent use and interpretation of ICT in education statistics among policymakers, statisticians, researchers, experts and statistical institutions across the world.

This technical paper should serve as a reference and training guide for collecting comparable data at the country level and for completing future UIS questionnaires on ICT in education. Given the rapidly evolving nature of this field, this is intended to be a living document that will be subject to future refinements.
