Lithuania > The Current Curriculum Context for ICT Lithuania > The Current Curriculum Context for ICT

Lithuania has a National Curriculum in place which is organised around individual subjects, each with their own objectives, didactic principles and themes.

Information Technology is taught as a discrete subject within this framework. Although the National Curriculum is open to the idea of information technologies being integrated within other subjects or used as a means to encourage cross-curricular learning, there is almost nothing concretely prescribed within the other subjects about how technology might be used.

Students are expected to develop their ICT knowledge, skills and attitudes according to two main standards. These are the General Information Technology Standard and the Students General Computer Literacy Standard.
Both standards relate closely to the European Computer Driving License model. They have certain key areas of study and learning objectives (e.g. to use ICT possibilities to search for, process and present information). The standard of a student's ICT literacy is assessed by formal examination.
