Shanti Divaharan, & Lim, C. P. (2001, December). A collective case study of IT integration in Singapore secondary schools. Paper presented at the AARE Conference, Fremantle, Australia.
The focus of this qualitative research is to study how Information Technology (IT) is used by teachers to support students learning effectively in Singapore secondary schools. The study would focus on the manipulation of IT as a tool, which encourages effective learning to take place with the presence of any of the core thinking skills as presented in Dimensions of Thinking framework proposed by Marzano, among Singapore secondary school students. Activity Theory would be adopted as the theoretical framework for this study. Activity theory is a philosophical framework that provides the structure to study various human interaction and practices within the context of development. By using activity theory as a framework, it is hoped that the study would be able to observe, analyse and report on the interaction between the various factors, which influence the use of IT to support students learning. It is hoped that once completed, the study would provide insight to educators and researchers on how IT can be successfully used to scaffold students’ cognition to optimise their capacity and potential to think and become life long learners. At this stage, however, the report would focus on the methodology of the study.
