This paper highlights the Norwegian educational Information Technology (IT) policy over the last ten years with its main focus on primary and secondary school level. Recent curricular guidelines (1994/1997) do not give special priority to IT and treat IT within normal administrative routines. Still priority is given to and understanding advocated of the potential and importance of IT in education. This paper comments on this situation in the educational field.
