In recent decades there has been a proliferation of research on the incorporation and impact of information and communication technologies (ICT) in teaching-learningprocesses. This paper lies within the framework of the implementation and use of ICT as a medium of learning in Primary Education. A learning programme was created, implemented and evaluated through using the computer known as IKASYS (derived from the Basque verb «ikasi»-to learn), with the principal aim of assessing its impact on learning by school pupils. In the 2008/09 academic year the IKASYS project was launched in an experimental manner in 19 schools in the Basque Country. In this paper, besides explaining its content, the basic tenets and procedures of the IKASYS project as well as the methodology used for its evaluation are described. The system of methodological complementariness, integrating quantitative and qualitative procedures, was opted for. Finally, the results obtained from the project and the general conclusions drawn —overall, positive ones— are outlined.
