520    National governments and multi-national institutions are 
       spending unprecedented amounts of money on ICT on 
       improving the overall quality of school learning, 
       and schools are increasingly expected to prepare young 
       people for a global economy in which inter-cultural 
       understanding will be a priority. This book explores and 
       analyzes the ways ICT has been used to promote citizenship
       and community cohesion in projects that link together 
       schools in different parts of the world. It examines the 
       theoretical framework behind such work and shows the 
       impact of initiatives in the Middle East, Canada, the USA,
       England, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and 
       elsewhere in the European Union. This is a critical 
       examination of the technologies that have been deployed, 
       the professional development that has been provided and an
       evaluation of what constitutes good practice, particularly
       in terms of what collaborative learning really means for 
       young people. Many of these initiatives have enabled young
       people to develop more positive relations with culturally 
       and religiously different neighbours, but this work has 
       just begun. Continuing international tensions over matters
       of identity and faith require that we better 
       understand the political context for such work so that we 
       might shape future directions more deliberately and more 
       clearly.
