This book helps readers to improve the development of ICT capability through understanding the factors at work in whole school contexts. Based on research that examined schools' approaches to the development of pupils' ICT capability and identified the factors which lead to success, it provides practical advice, but with clear justifications in terms of well-researched principles and illustrations. It covers issues specific to both primary and secondary phases of education together with a range of common concerns and will be of use to practitioners and school staff involved in planning and delivering ICT training. This title will therefore provide readers with: Greater understanding or personal ICT capability Knowledge of effective management, teaching methods and co-ordination strategies for ICT Understanding of the importance of a whole school approach


'Developing the ICT Capable School is very much a here-and-now book that will appeal primarily to managers in schools. The authors show a clear understanding of the issues confronting school managers trying to evolve practice with ICT in the whole school. - Angela McFarlane, Times Educational Supplement
