Integrating ICT and Multicultural Aspects Within a Classroom: The SAIL Project
Intercultural Education, v16 n4 p395-404 Oct 2005
The implementation of technology in the primary school sector during the last few years has resulted in issues being raised relating to teachers' knowledge of technology and their propensities for incorporating ICT into an already packed curriculum. Teachers in Malta were faced with challenges to their various teaching professional knowledge and to their prior and developing understanding of the conceptual and procedural aspects of technology. SAIL provided opportunities for teachers to develop their understandings of minorities in Europe within a community of teachers, while at the same time promoting technology both as a process and a product.
