Education and research

Estonia’s efforts to leverage technology for teaching and learning began in the 1990s with an ambitious Tiger Leap programme to build up schools’ technology infrastructure, including providing internet access and computers to all schools.
How can Estonia ensure the involvement of all social groups in a digital society? The digital revolution in Estonia continues to use modern digital technology effectively in learning, teaching and research. Estonia has  invested in the development of schools’ local internet connections, purchasing devices for teachers, supporting the creation of digital learning materials and advancement of teachers’ digital skills. Those investments into infrastructure and ecosystem lied ground also for a quick switch into the remote learning model during the first days of the COVID19 crisis.

School management systems

To engage people in the digital society, the state has cooperated with the private sector to deliver several educational programmes and also, both the state and private companies provide educational institutions ICT services to support learning and teaching. Estonia uses numerous smart solutions that make school life more efficient and smooth: digital textbooks, e-learning materials, digital class diary, digital assessments, also various applications. For example, in the first days of the corona crisis, one lifeline for Estonian education was the fact that 95% of schools use e-diaries eKool or Stuudium. These innovative tools by private companies provide an easy way for parents, teachers and children to collaborate and organize all the information necessary for teaching and learning.
