Abstract

The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development in Victoria, Australia has a strong history of investment in ICT infrastructure and tools to enable improved teaching and learning. In 2009 it embarked on an ambitious project to provide a state wide knowledge management framework for use by more than 1500 government schools. Its centrepiece, the Ultranet, is an electronic learning environment designed to support learning and teaching, connect students, teachers and parents and enable efficient knowledge transfer. This paper outlines the components of the approach and the research program that is being implemented to evaluate and learn from the investment. Early findings suggest that planning, preparation and support were important to schools, and that while attitudes to the new environment are generally positive, some teachers report a lack of confidence in using ICT.
