Abstract


This paper reports the key findings of a questionnaire survey aimed at exploring the critical aspects of information technology (IT) integration in Singapore schools. The survey is the first part (Phase 1) of a larger study funded by the Ministry of Education (MOE), Singapore, to analyse where and how IT mediates pupils’ higher order thinking skills in schools. 328 schools (87.2% of the target population of 376 schools) responded to the questionnaire. Based on the findings, three recommendations are made concerning:

  1. IT-integration models for Singapore schools;

  2. Exploring new strategies for pupil IT competency development in

    selected government and government aided schools; and

  3. IT competency standards for teachers and pupils.
