Morley, Graham (2009) International Implications from Teachers’ Experiences in the England: How to Assist Primary Teachers in Keeping Pace with ICT. In: IFIP World Conference on Computers in Education, 27 - 31 July 2009, Bento Goncalves, Brazil.

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 qualitative evidence of the teacher sample was through individual semi-structured interviews and a focus group interview of Local Authorities officers. There is an evidence trail which examines conference papers, HMI, QCA, Ofsted and DfES reports. 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 uncertain as to a suitable pedagogy. The New Opportunities Funding (NOF) training was reported as being a disappointment due to its over-ambitious aims and lack of pedagogical content. Teachers involved in the study are finding it difficult to find time to either keep pace or develop their ICT skills.
