    This report summaries a recently completed study of telecommunications use in secondary schools in Europe. Over 60 projects were examined and surveys and interviews with project leaders and other educators involved in telecommunications use with secondary school students were conducted and analyzed. An extensive literature and project-report review, conducted on a world-wide basis, provided a framework for looking at the European activity. In this Paper we summarize the results of the study with respect to major trends in the instructional use of telecommunications in European secondary schools. We also summarize recommendations pertinent not only for Europe but also more broadly for teacher support and, more generally for telecommunications activities in secondary schools.
