Integrating Online Learning in NSW Secondary Schools: Three Schools' Perspectives on ICT Adoption
Neyland, Edwina
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, v27 n1 p152-173 2011
This report examines factors associated with integration of online learning in Sydney region high schools. Past studies have shown that schools can be identified as operating at a certain level of use--ranging from non-use, through stages such as entry, and adaptation, arriving at transformation--when a focus on technology shifts to a focus on the learner. This report highlights several factors affecting the use of online learning in Sydney high schools, including systemic factors such as institutional support, as well as micro factors such as teacher capability. After questionnaires and interviews conducted with computer coordinators during 2009, it was found that immediate school factors such as school support and focus on pedagogy were perceived as being more important than broader systemic factors. (Contains 1 table and 5 figures.)
