    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The application of ICT in education in rural and remote contexts is rapidly evolving and is actively being pursued as a solution to educational issues. ICT in education involves technological as well as pedagogical and social dimensions. This paper examines approaches being taken in developing ICT usage in Northern Territory schools for teaching and learning. It covers both technological and pedagogical issues. It discusses issues of access, professional development, leadership and support. It discusses how teachers in three schools are applying computer-based technology in their classes. The paper highlights the need for teacher professional development, the need for high-speed broadband access for effective application of ICT in rural and remote education and for the sustainability of infrastructure and practices.
