4 Feb 2009
Description

edna commissioned market research with first year teachers about how they currently use ICT in their teaching, and how their pre-service training prepared them for using information technologies.

* use the web much more in planning than in teaching – Google and Wikipedia predominate;
* described their pre-service ICT training as patchy and inconsistent;
* experienced similar barriers to previous teachers & ICT market research – limited school infrastructure, site blocking;
