For more than a decade Plan Ceibal, which began in 2007, has installed, maintained and expanded a computer infrastructure that reaches all elementary and middle public schools, and ensures access to laptops, digital contents and resources, platforms, educational programs, training and support for both students and teachers, as well as internet connectivity for all classrooms countrywide. However, Ceibal faces the important challenge of responding to the changing needs of improving education, training educators and ensuring digital inclusion of the population, which in the present are not necessarily addressed by the sole availability of digital devices. This report describes and summarizes some of the main characteristics, innovations, lessons learned, challenges and achievements of the implementation of Plan Ceibal in Uruguay over more than 10 years.
