Studies show that: <ul><li>The planning process is vitally important, the plan that results from this process is only one of the outcomes. </li></ul><ul><li>A successful plan includes a defined set of educational outcomes and a proposed pathway to try to get there. </li></ul><ul><li>Change in attitudes and thinking from planning can be more important than the ICTs themselves . </li></ul>
Studies show that: <ul><li>Good plans are developed by consensus and collaboration. </li></ul><ul><li>Good plans involve the whole community and are owned by them. </li></ul><ul><li>Good plans stress application across the whole curriculum. </li></ul><ul><li>Successful planners make informed decisions based on examining best practice elsewhere. </li></ul>

■ Familiarisation Teachers are becoming increasingly aware of ICT, and may have attended some training, but often lack confidence and therefore reluctant to use it in their classroom teaching.
■ Utilisation Teachers are increasingly aware of the benefits of technology, and begin to incorporate it into teaching, often replacing former activities with ICT alternatives. This begins to have a beneficial effect on teaching and learning.
■ Integration Teachers are becoming increasingly familiar with appropriate use of ICT, and can integrate it into many aspects of their ongoing teaching. Teaching and learning are becoming significantly enhanced.
■ Reorientation The potential of ICT is now exploited to enable approaches which could not easily be replicated by traditional means. Teaching and learning begin to be significantly transformed.
■ Evolution The creative possibilities of ICT are being fully explored. ICT is developed in response to learners’ needs. Teaching and learning are significantly transformed.
