Promoting ICT use in Portuguese schools. A case of school-university collaboration
AbstractIn this article we analyse a four-year period of collaboration between 36 k-12 schools and a higher education institution concerning ICT integration in the light of theoretical perspectives on educational change and innovation. The school and a team of experts of the University designed each integration project collaboratively, the school’s needs were identified and actions were implemented to train teachers on ICT use and to give support to the integration of technology in their practices. Identified factors for successful integration are discussed within the frame of school-university collaboration contributing for the design of future similar initiatives.
