Abstract

This paper discusses the findings of the collective case study of two primary schools in Singapore. It is part of a larger funded research project that examines and analyses where and how IT is integrated in Singapore schools to develop pupils' higher order thinking skills. The focus of this paper is on the IT classroom management issues that create a conducive environment to support the effective integration of IT in the schools. In such an environment, pupils are more likely to be task-oriented and reflective, and hence, more likely to engage in higher order thinking. These issues include the establishment of rules and procedures, availability of IT resources, conduct and management of IT-based activities, and division of labour among participants.
