Case Study
ABSTRACT
In France, two ongoing ICT projects--the ENT and the learning center, called the 3C--involve teacher-librarians and headmasters whose common purpose is to reinforce information literacy practice by pupils. What do these projects mean to them? How do we overcome the ambiguity of the concepts and the blur in the definitions to manage in a better way these ICT projects? After reviewing the objectives and the main features of these projects, the paper attempts to provide some items of reflection on this topic relying on the Clermont-Ferrand case study. It shows the distance between expectations and realities of ICT projects and determines the shortcomings that need to be focused on in order that all stakeholders would show the same enthusiasm for the e-learning of the 21st century.
