This special issue of The Nordic Journal of Digital Literacy is based on the symposium “ICT in teaching and learning. A Nordic Perspective”, held at the NERA conference in Reykjavik March 2013.1 This issue presents research on a variety of issues related to the use of ICT in teaching and learning. The contributors approach the theme by exploring a Nordic perspective within a wider context of international/European studies, with the objective of the potentials as well as the challenges of using ICT in an educational context.
