Abstract

This paper reflects the findings of a study conducted to assess educators' competence in integrating computers for teaching and learning purposes at selected primary school. This School, situated in Soweto, Gauteng - South Africa, was the first school to receive computers as part of the GautengOnline project. As the GautengOnline project was launched only recently (in 2000), documentation is scant, and relatively little information about educators' competence to maximize the usefulness of computers has been gathered by independent researchers. Previous research by the South African institute for Distance Education, which evaluated the Telkom 1000 Schools Project, found that most educators were not competent to integrate information and communication technologies in teaching and learning, and it was on this premise that educators' competence in this area within the framework of the GautengOnline project was evaluated.
