Abstract

This paper is the third of six case studies in a research project, “The school and information technology (IT)”. This one is taking place in the compulsory school in the municipality of Tingsryd. The results of the study show that that the technical infrastructure for IT has been improved by the purchase of new computers and the creation of an intranet in the schools. It also seems as if the knowledge and ability of the teachers regarding IT has been improved, even though there are differences within the teaching staff. A conclusion is that the new technology introduced is making a difference and have the potential to improve educational activities and pedagogical renewal. Another conclusion is that IT has much more easily become integrated in the administrative work for the principals as well as the teachers than as a tool for pedagogical renewal. The long term effects of the IT investments very much depends upon the ability of the municipality to invest further funds to sustain and if possible develop the current IT-level in the schools.
