This article reveals the results of a research study that was carried out in Spain in 2012 with the purpose of discovering the influence of the gender variable on the incorporation of the Internet in the educational programmes of primary and secondary public education centres. By using a multiple case study carried out in situ, the research team has gathered information from the teaching staff entrusted with the process of incorporating the Internet into the educational programme at each school. It has also studied the way in which the use of the Internet in the classroom is specified. These sources have been subjected to triangulation techniques in order to increase the reliability of the results, which has enabled us to define the extent to which the gender of those running the educational implementation of the Internet in Spanish centres is influential. The results show that there are no significant differences between men and women as regards the introduction of the Internet into the educational programmes at the centres used in this study.
