    Abstract

    The research aim was to investigate how teachers were adapting to the use of ICT in primary schools. The research uses both qualitative and quantitative methodologies employing multiple sources of data collection. Quantitative data collection used a survey of primary schools in two English Local Authorities. The main findings indicate that teachers were becoming familiar with the use of computers. They understood the skills involved in using computers but were still lacking confidence in there use in the classroom. Teachers were also uncertain as to a suitable pedagogy to be used with ICT as it has been suggest that a new innovative pedagogy appropriate for the 21st. century is required, as the traditional methods have failed to deliver.
