Abstract

This chapter explores the possibilities of online tools to support ICT (Information and Communication Technology) integration in primary education. Before describing three valuable tools, a framework will be discussed which gives schools insight into the most important preconditions for successful use of ICT in relation to the selection of a specific tool. Consequently, three specific tools are described: (1) the "Four in Balance" tool measures a school's current use of ICT, (2) the "ICT-Assessment tool" focuses on teachers' knowledge and skills and corresponds with the school's vision on 'good' education, and (3) "pICTos", an online tool that supports the process of ICT planning in schools. These examples illustrate how the tools operate and their many possibilities.
