Target 2 reflects the importance of connecting all schools with ICTs. ICT connectivity in schools provides pupils with new resources and pedagogical tools, allows them to acquire the skills required for the information society, improves administrative processes and supports teacher training. Outside school hours, connected schools can provide access to ICTs for the community, including marginalized groups.
