The focus of this paper is on network integration issues and their potential to support the development of ICTs applications in education in border and peripheral areas. The paper elaborates on the concept of ‘networked school’ as the core of educational applications in such areas, considered as a ‘gate’, through which they can get access to knowledge stock and information outside their frontiers. Such developments can complement traditional educational processes at the primary and secondary school level, but also enhance vocational training prospects in less privileged regions.
