It is recognised worldwide that there is a slow uptake by teachers of Information Communication Technologies in school classrooms. This study focused on determining the effectiveness of a school-based, on-site, and ongoing professional development program conducted in a primary school in Hong Kong. There were training sessions conducted by fellow teachers, and participatory action research groups to share resources and experience in incorporating ICT in teaching. Teachers’ incorporation of computers in teaching was significantly increased in the first year of intervention but showed fluctuation in the second year. A number of explanations were offered by teachers in their interviews for these changes. The paper concludes with an examination of the implications of the study for teaching in primary schools.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
