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 mentoring 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.” (Ministry of Education, n.d.) The Kopu Project’s aim is to depart from the ‘traditional’ teaching model to a constructivist teaching 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, community and the school culture as a whole. This case study seeks to identify and analyse the critical success factors involved in the transition from a traditional teaching model to a 21st Century learning model. The factors will emerge from the case study through interviews with the principals and mentor teachers in the seven schools involved in the Kopu Project. The interviews and surveys took place in August 2007. All the schools are in the third and final year of the participation in the DigiOps project. This case study is a comprehensive review of the impact of the Kopu DigiOps project.
