Lan, Jiang; He, Shujia; Ouyang, John Ronghua; Zhonghai, Qiu; Bao, Qiu
This paper reports on an investigation of technology infusion at QiBao Middle School, one of the leading secondary schools in Shanghai (China). Major focuses of the study are models of professional development for teachers and how teachers enlist the help of their students. Results are presented related to: technology infrastructure; technology competence and training for faculty and staff; technology expectations and activities for students; the QiBao Research Association for Modern Educational Technology; the impact of technology in QiBao; and multimedia courseware contests. It is concluded that the Chinese experience may have relevance for American schools; while China started well behind American schools in access to and use of information technology, it has rapidly been able to mobilize and train teachers to infuse technology.
