Abstract: In this paper We present a pilot study providing ICT resources at some Italian junior high schools. In 2009, 156 classes at 6th grade were endowed with additional resources earmarked for purchasing ICT equipment. By selecting an equivalent number of classes in the same schools, we are able to conduct an evaluation of the causal effect of ICT on student achievements, controlling for their initial level. Despite a significant investment, the impact on literacy and numeracy achievement is negligible: if we take the most encouraging results, the average improvement would be 3 test points, corresponding to 17% of a standard deviation.
