An OECD report has found that Irish school students are less likely to use and have access to computers in school compared to pupils in many other countries.

The study found that around 90% of Irish students have access to computers at school. But only 25% of Irish students say they use a computer in school regularly, compared to around 70% in the UK.

It was also found that Ireland is among a group of countries which show the least positive attitudes among students towards computers.

The OECD has also found that regular computer users perform better in key school subjects.
