School ICT on Budget Print
March 2007
(For Principals & ICT Directors)

It is common sense to say that the level of ICT expertise in a school is dependent on its dispensable budget for implementing ICT as tools for learning, teaching and school administration. At one end of the spectrum, there are schools with absolutely no in-house ICT expertise and they depend on low frequency low expertise IT service provider calls to make do. At the other end of the spectrum, there are schools with in-house ICT managers and technicians with further access to outside consultants as needed. The big variation indicates not just a budgetary issue but an attitude or core belief issue. How high ICT is on the school agenda is subject to individual school directions. However, how high ICT should be on the school agenda should be an educational agenda. Another important aspect is whether the arrangements in place are fit for purposes and provide the highest possible return to the school for the spend.
