Teacher education in Sweden has been subject to criticism for not providing teachers-to-be with relevant knowledge and skills concerning the pedagogical use of ICT. Only as late as in 2005 a nationwide investment was launched and three projects commenced with the overall aim of enhancing ICT competence within teacher education. One of the projects was called LIKA (Learning, Information, Communication, Administration) which brought together four institutions of higher education in Stockholm region. This six-year project engaged approx. 600 teacher educators and 6 000 pre-service teachers in 245 different activities with the scope of integrating digital literacy in teacher education programs within the participating institutions. The project developed a holistic model for integration of ICT with digital literacy as a key concept including theoretical, didactic/pedagogical, and technical competences. In a holistic model, digital literacy is established both on the individual and organizational levels with the goal of developing a learning organization where collaborative knowledge creation and learning constitute vital parts of everyday actions. This can be obtained through long term commitment of all personnel in systematic improvement of courses and curricula through experimentation and competence development.
