Abstract

This study elucidates the resistance and its meaning to changes to some national projects related to integrating information technology into teaching. This study examined a series changes to the “Seed School of Information Technology” program using Fullan’s perspective. All participating schools had some resistance from teachers to updating and retrieving instruction material, using new teaching approaches, and constructing new beliefs. Resistance was also based on human nature, as noted by Evan. Understanding human nature and is relationship to resisting change will help change agents develop thoughtful and sound communication strategies for those who have to implement changes.
