Teaching and Learning with Information and Communication Technology: Success through a Whole School Approach.
This paper reports on research carried out through a case study which sought to identify how institutionalized teaching and learning practices and processes--"the way we do things around here"--led to successful teaching and learning with information and communication technology (ICT) at a large contributing New Zealand primary school (700 students aged 5 to 11 years). The research findings were considered against the backdrop of the international literature, historical trends, and current educational conditions for New Zealand schools in relation to ICT. A major contention of this research is that government funding for ICT in schools should be linked to demonstrable improvements in student learning outcomes. The research also contends that immediate adoption of "practised and proven" approaches already existent in some schools would help many other schools improve teaching and learning with ICT in their respective learning communities. The paper presents a model for school-wide implementation of ICT; major components of the model include student learning, infrastructure, pedagogical, monitoring, implementation, teacher education, and management.
