This working paper, proposes a conceptual framework for obtaining ICT indicators in education which is defined by a set of distinctive features: a holistic and systemic approach, a flexible and comprehensive strategy of analysis and, lastly, a willingness to monitor and set benchmarks to promote innovation. The potential of this model lies in its ability to provide comparable data on the dynamics of ICT integration into schools, which permits the various people responsible for this process to take decisions that are based on the result of empirical analysis rather than belief or intuition. For education systems faced with the challenges posed by the network society, making such decisions is indisputable and critical, but especially in the case of countries that are less developed and where the cost of applying tentative solutions is hardly acceptable. Obtaining indicators for monitoring this process should help identify sustainable solutions that do not give up on using ICT, efficiently, for innovation and improving education.
