Other initiatives:

Denmark is currently running a pilot initiative that gives senior secondary students access to the internet during their examinations. The idea is to test their research and analytic skills, rather than just their knowledge of straight facts. With the internet now such a part of daily life, the Danish government believes it should be included in the classroom and in exams.
