[en] The education authorities in the Belgium French Community have been cautious to avoid waste and wary of prematurely rushing the diffusion of the new information technologies. However, many initiatives have been taken at local levels with recommendations and support from centralized levels. Three types of organizing authorities oversee the educational system of the French Community. The structure of the system and the more general developments in the educational uses of computers are described first. Policy and practices under the specific organizing authorities are then reviewed in turn. All discussion refers only to the period up until 1994.
This report was prepared in 1994. Its realisation owes thanks to the participation of the Inspectors Cambier, Denis, Desir, Hannon, Huberty Mathot, Mossiat, Simon, and Verlove.
