On behalf of the Ministry of Education in Luxembourg (Europe), 821 teachers - from primary school to higher education - were questioned in an online survey at the beginning of 2009 about their use of information and communication technologies (ICT) in education. In this paper, we briefly present the context of the questionnaire and will then focus on its outcomes. The preliminary analysis of the results will mainly focus on the closed questions of the survey and try to answer several fundamental questions related to the availability, as well as to the current and the future usage of ICT in schools. Most of the teachers use ICT in some way in education, but printed documents remain the most popular source of information during class. The main argument listed to use ICT is the increase of students' motivation, while the major concern is the technical hardware dependency or unavailability. Also, an important number of teachers is concerned about the increased preparation time that is in most cases not rewarded. Finally, a vast majority of the teachers is willing to take part in an e-learning training program, probably because they feel unqualified or do not (yet) see the advantage of ICT for their classes.

The main objective of the Intergeo Project (http://i2geo.net) is to make digital content for mathematics teaching in Europe more accessible, usable and exploitable. So far, Intergeo provides an Internet platform that offers content in a searchable and metadata-tagged form. In particular, teachers can search for suitable content based on the key concepts and themes of their curriculum. Once found, the content can be used either directly on the web or using the software of choice. Another very important aspect is that all material used in the classroom should adhere to certain pedagogical and mathematical quality standards. Intergeo facilitates the evaluation of material by means of a quality-testing framework that aids teachers and researchers in assessing the educational value of the digital content. The questionnaire used for this can be answered both quickly as well as in depth. In this workshop we will show how to use the platform and how to participate in the project as a user or by becoming an associate partner. Also, we will help software and tool authors to be able to read and write the new standard format for interactive geometry, i2g. [less ▲]
