Abstract

The use of information and communications technology (ICT) in schools has become
widespread in many countries throughout the world. The extent to which it has been
incorporated into the work of schools varies widely from simply as a tool to help
produce documents to one that is fully integrated into the whole school curriculum.
Initiatives taken to encourage teaches to use ICT in their teaching and learning
methodologies inevitably raise awareness of pedagogical issues and how these should
be reappraised in the light of the demands of encompassing the new technology.
China started the process of introducing ICT into its schools later than many other
countries. This study examines the use of ICT in middle schools in cities in north east
China to discover the attitudes of teachers and students to how effective the use of
ICT is from their viewpoints. In addition the study ascertains the possibilities for
further development of the use of ICT to enrich the students’ education. Where
possible the interpretation of the analyses of the findings are generalised further from
the two cities in which the survey took place.
