Summary: The Macedonian Ministry of Education has set forth the goal of appropriately integrating
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) into the public school curriculum.
To realize that goal, teachers and students must be provided with appropriate tools and resources.
To be meaningful, these resources must be “localized” to students’ culture and background.
Software must use students’ native language; use local terms (geographical, historical,
traditional); and use localized digital resources (text, pictures, audio, video, multimedia presentations,
web pages). It is therefore important to begin to create a repository of digital tools and
resources useful for the learning process. World Learning Macedonia has started an “Integrating
ICT into Curriculum” program. As result of the workshops and cooperation between faculties
from Macedonia and George Mason University in the United States, we have begun to organize
such a repository. This report will describe the process of creating digital resources for Macedonian
pupils and teachers.
