Due to the transfer of jurisdiction over education to the different Spanish autonomous communities, the development of information and communication technologies has been approached from a broad diversity of angles, according to the priorities and the educational policy of each community.
A detailed comparative analysis of the different policies followed within the various autonomous communities in terms of initial and inservice teacher training in information and communication technologies lies outside the remit of this report, as does a description of Spanish educational system at present, this being well documented by other readily available sources[1].
The curricula for initial teacher training —for teachers in infant school, primary education and secondary education— are very different in the various autonomous communities within Spain, and the incorporation of ICT is still in an initial phase[12].

 THE PARTICIPATION OF SPANISH ‘AUTONOMOUS COMMUNITIES’ IN THE ADOPTION OF EUROPEAN UNION DECISIONS   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The inter-national character of the process of integration within the EU has allowed nations (central administration) to compensate for the loss of competence already mentioned by means of their straight participation in the different European spheres of decision.
It is absolutely necessary to articulate the participation of the Spanish comunidades in the elaboration of EU decisions which affect their competence, in order to avoid the actual, let us say, ‘re-nationalisation’ of some pieces of competence which belong to the comunidades.
The respect both to the principle of autonomy granted by the Spanish Constitución and to the mutual competential cession between ‘the’ nation and the comunidades, also regulated by the Constitución, must be achieved by means of the co-participation of the comunidades in the elaboration of European decisions.
