The Integrated Educational System. The Impact of Information Technology on the Educational Process

Dan Pauna, Mihaela Maxineanu


SEI (computerized educational system) governmental program, initiated in 2001, is a national approach whose objective is to computerize the education system by giving schools the necessary equipment, by designing a large number of software for the interaction student-contents of subjects taught, by offering psycho-pedagogical training to teachers in order to ensure the placing of the student at the centre of the teaching-learning process and by setting the premises of a computerized network as support of a modern management (Ilia F., 2003, p. 34). As a generic term, the "impact" envisaged in this paper is noticed in the analysis of the beneficiaries' opinions - managers, teachers, and students - about the usefulness and need of using the information technology in the education process. Probably the most significant answer obtained in this respect is the general opinion of students concerning the legitimacy of using the new technology in order to avoid socio-professional cast out.
Most students consider that those who do not have access to a computer will be in a disadvantaged position later (90,4%), while only 8,7% think this issue is not important. The impact plans of the new technology on the educational process and system are countless, and determining them is a difficult and complex process. Anyway, a few incidence points have been found during the evaluation and they concern aspects of institutional development of schools, some implications for the professional training of teachers, as well as perceptions of beneficiaries regarding the effects of TIC (Information and Communication Technology) on students' proficiency and the development of digital skills.
