    Computers and computer related media are well established in the educational institutions of the twelve countries of the European Community: Belgium, Denmnarki, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Extensive experience related to computer use has accumulated within the school systems, in institutes of higher education, in training situations, and in situations involving more open and flexible learning occurring inside and outside of traditional educational institutions.
    In decades of experience in 12 countries cannot be adequately summarized. Instead, we will look selectively at a few aspects of the European experience with computing in education that may particularly highlight its characteristics, both those shared with many other settings with regard to the implementation of computer-related resources in education, and those which may be unique to the European Community setting. First, we need to establish some basic terminology and frames of reference for the article.
