What is your Government doing for ICT in Education

I’d appreciate a little help. I’m doing a short presentation on Government supported initiatives to extend or improve the use of ICT in education in various countries. Comparing their objectives, priorities, policies, initiatives and funding.

I’m thinking of strategies such as the laptop rollout to year 9 to 12s in Australia, the requirement to provide a VLE in every school in England, the Glow project in Scotland.

What are the 1 to 5 most important initiatives that your state or national government is doing to support ICT in Education. Please post a reply in the comments and include a brief description,  and a URL for more details if possible. Add your own comments on the initiative if you wish

Thanks

Tasmania:
Laptops for all fulltime teachers in DoE schools (and all those above some fraction of fulltime, 0.6 I think)

Statewide managed network – universal signin in any school, ICT support staff centrally funded.
