Abstract

In 2003 the authors visited four schools in the Western Australian Department of Education and Training’s Kimberley Education District to investigate the use of Information Communication Technologies (ICT) in the curriculum for students who have diverse needs. The visits also provided an opportunity to investigate how teachers in remote school communities were using ICT in the overall school curriculum, the use of ICT to facilitate effectiveness of school administration and the extent of ICT professional development opportunities for teachers in remote locations.
