Several international surveys prove that Sweden is falling behind in IT development in schools, reported SvD on Thursday.

Female teachers have said they want to get involved and work more with Internet education and computers. It appears it's mostly male teachers that have access to computers and who run tutorials using the Internet and other computer software.

In addition, there are no proper teaching plans in place for tutorials with IT use, according to SvD.

Up to 63 per cent of male teachers have access to computers while at work, compared to only 38 per cent of female teachers.
