Too many ICT projects in schools are failing. What factors lead to succes? Consider the following:
Make ICT in your school an add-in (an integral part of teaching) and not a mere add-on (an occasional use of technology).
ICT in schools must be driven by educational needs – the technology tail should never wag the education dog.
ICT usually succeeds in schools where the principal has a clear vision of how technology should support teaching and learning.
An ICT implementation project in a school can only succeed if the school’s needs are matched with appropriate technologies.
In the absence of education department support, schools have to work extra hard to succeed in ICT implementation.
Can you add any other critical success factors?
