 Abstract

The integration of ICT tools in the school environment is being canvassed by the Government of Mauritius as it is viewed as being the first step in the digitalisation efforts of the country’s services. This paper sets out to investigate teachers’ opinion in a model school about the integration of ICT in school and to feedback same for management concerns to redirect procedures to enhance work at school. This study is of particular importance as a bottom-up approach is advocated to fine tune management practices from the end users perspectives. A case study methodological approach has been used to suit the research design. Data has been obtained through questionnaire survey and interviews in the backdrop of documentary search. The raw data has been filtered and was graphically treated using Microsoft Excel 2010 and a statistical treatment of the data collected was interpreted usefully by SPSS Ver 16.0


Key words: Education development, Mauritius, ICT, model school
