There are all kinds of interesting documents that describe the Australian Government’s ICT strategy for Education, so here’s a summary of some of the key resources you can use to research the market.
If you’re from outside of Australia, it’s important to know that there is a Federal strategy – which applies to all states, and then State strategies for each individual state. They normally mesh together, but it’s common for a federal strategy to be implemented in different ways in different states (in fact, it’s sometimes the strategy for some states to ensure that they implement things differently to their neighbouring states)
What I’ve linked to below are the strategic plans for education ICT for the three largest states and the Federal government.
