RESOURCES IN ROMANIA
The statement that best describes this feature of Romanian education system is: Do your best with the least you have. Most of the Romanian schools were equipped by the government or EU with computers and informatics labs. Certain departments in our school got also interactive whiteboards, overhead projectors and AEL labs in order to integrate ICT in teaching their subjects. Still, there is less sustainable development in these funding programs, since these resources aren´t used at their full capacity, because of teachers´ lack of training in using them, easy damaging of computers and lack of teachers interest to use them on a regular basis. The highest problem that dissatisfies both students and teachers is that there are no computers that can be used in the classrooms. Neither student nor teachers have their own laptops or notebooks. All the computers we had in the school became so damaged, that the headmaster decided to collect them in the staff room to be used only by teachers. In my school, at every 25 students you will find 3 students living in the countryside and not having a computer of their own. Altogether, they manage to do their ICT school projects in internet cafes or using their colleagues ‘computers. Very poor students are helped by the government to buy a computer, by accessing a programme that offers the students 200 EURO, part of the money necessary to buy a new computer.

There are pedagogical-methodical centres in capitals of regions and also there is sometimes a free educational SW on their web = resources of the pedagogical SW.

Turkey:Turkey has a specific investment fone for ICT practices including education. With this fone ICT invstments are allocated. Now all schools have internet connection and ICT labs. From this time all classes will have a interactive board and alll students will have a ICT reader like a I-Pad. Main matter will be teacher training because there are approximatey 700.000 teacher. It will cost very much to provide in-service training.
