Abstract

This paper summarizes findings from a broader multi-case study involving Cypriot primary teachers, which draw implications for the design and conduction of the teacher ICT training programme. The findings indicate that, for the successful integration of ICT into education, the programme, beyond the basic technical skills and knowledge, should have a pedagogical orientation. Moreover, other aspects such as the tailoring of the programme to address the school’s and teachers’ specific needs and the ‘formalization’ of the informal and unstructured diffusion of knowledge within the teacher community in a school are also suggested.
