Abstract

The Thin Client wireless broadband project, is a pilot initiative involving a cluster of nine primary schools based in North County Dublin, Ireland. It is a four year project designed to investigate firstly, the extent to which a centrally managed network, based on thin client technology, can deliver an effective robust technology infrastructure to schools, and secondly, the extent to which such a solution can support and enhance pedagogical practice in relation to the deployment of ICT in education. A researcher has been assigned to the project to conduct a longitudinal study of the project’s progress and impact. Prior to its commencement the researcher gathered baseline data from the project participants in order to establish the ICT skills and competency levels of teachers and their perceptions of their School’s ICT infrastructure. This paper discusses the key findings from this early stage research and the implications for the project’s development.
