This brief examines how changes in the availability of school ICT resources and recent participation in ICT-related professional development may explain increases in teachers’ use of ICT during the pandemic in Denmark, Finland, and Uruguay. Results indicate positive effects of both professional development and school ICT resources on ICT use in all three countries. The brief concludes with a discussion of recent policy efforts to promote the use of ICT through targeted investments in computer infrastructure and ICT-related teacher training. It also outlines the implications for future evidence-based responses to educational disruptions.
