Abstract or Summary

The Digital Opportunities projects are joint partnerships between schools, organizations involved in ICT and the Ministry of Education. The aim is to improve learning through the innovative use of leading edge technologies. “The Kopu Project aims to transition the schools’ to a 21st model of teaching and learning where information technology (ICT) is a key part in the learning process.” Kopu Project (2005.). As stated by Moresund, “There have been substantial gains in productivity attributed to ICT. Many new companies have been created and have prospered, and many other companies have proven unable to effectively deal with ICT-related changes. “My prediction is that the next three decades will see ICT being a disruptive force in education. Large changes will occur, and many of our schools and school systems that attempt to follow the "traditional" path of the past decades will not prosper.” (Moursund, 2002) The Kopu Projects aim is to depart from the traditional teaching model to a constructivist model where ICT is a key part of the learning process. As outlined in this case study, many adjustments are required to be made by the teachers, students and the school culture as a whole. This case study seeks to identify the critical success factors for using ICT to support the inquiry process in a Primary School classroom. The factors will emerge from the case study through interviews with the teachers and surveys from the children in the classes involved. For this case study, only the senior children were surveyed.
