Spain > The Current Curriculum Context for ICT Spain > The Current Curriculum Context for ICT

The Spanish Ministry of Education has established a minimum curriculum for every school which takes up 65% of the total curriculum time. In primary and secondary education, ICT is considered as a transversal competence and is covered in all subject areas in the curriculum. ICT as a subject is first encountered at the secondary school level. Here, students can study ICT each year from 7th to 10th grade. ICT targets can be divided in those which are subject related and the more generic ones, which coincide with the digital competence of the European key competences framework.

These digital competencies show how ICT can be used for two functions:

  • To transmit and to generate information and knowledge;
  • To identify and resolve problems on software and hardware and critically analyze the information obtained through the autonomous and collaborative work.

These competences must take place in all the subjects of the curriculum.
