Abstract

This paper describes a study of the implementation phase of the information and communication technology (ICT) innovation in education in Turkey. The paper gives an account of how the teachers perceived the quality of the ICT innovation process in their schools and what were the outcomes of the implementation. The research methodology was mainly qualitative which was preceded by an initial quantitative stage. The study of the initiation phase had showed that the conditions associated with successful initiations were not fully present. This study has found that the extent of the implementation of ICT innovation in secondary schools was rather limited five years after its initiation. Most of the use of computers in teaching was “teaching about computers.” “Learning with computers” was very limited and mostly took place in vocational schools.
