    This paper is the first of six case studies in a research project ”The school and information- and communication technology (ICT)”. This one is taking place in the municipality of Stenungsund. The results from the study can be summarised as: Some enthusiasts driving the development work and producing star cases. They claim that the new technology introduced is making a difference, but the most important aspect is that new technology is triggering a development for pedagogical renewal. Technology also bears the potential for extended surveillance and control, which is not so much spoken about. The differences in competence and the subsequent specialization of some teachers seem to be an unintended and inevitable consequence of the ICT introduction. The municipality claim to strive towards decentralization of the organization, however ICT seem to have an opposite effect. The continuity from the projects can be interpreted in two ways. When there is no more money there is any development. A more interesting conclusion is that ICT has affected the long-term attitude and use of ICT. The projects have exposed the community with possibilities as well as limitations and therefore the perception of ICT has changed within the school organization.
