Abstract

The current study focuses on human factors related to the implementation of educational technology in Hong Kong primary schools. This qualitative study was intended to complement previous quantitative studies by the same author. The interviews revealed discrepancies in perceptions among various stakeholders (viz., principals, teachers, and technology coordinators). The findings are consistent with those in the author’s quantitative research. The participants also complained about needlessly heavy workloads, inadequate training, poor strategies of matching of personnel to assignments, and so forth. The current qualitative and the previous quantitative studies cross-validate each other and send a strong message that appropriate measures must be taken to address all the above problems.
