Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 18 (4), 480-488.
In this article, an analysis of data from qualitative case studies of four Canadian schools illustrates
factors that facilitate successful ICT implementation. Findings of the study suggest that informal ICT
education, such as ‘just-in-time’ learning, is most influential. Furthermore, supportive and
collaborative relationships among teachers, a commitment to pedagogically sound implementation of
new technologies, and principals who encourage teachers to engage in their own learning are viewed as
highly useful factors.
