Continuing Professional Development in ICT for teachers

This report presents the findings from a qualitative study of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) for school teachers in Key Stages 1-4 in England.

The research aimed to identify 'effective' CPD, by collecting accounts from teachers, senior leaders and CPD providers, in which they described the key features of ICT CPD which made a difference to teachers' use of technologies in their practice, based on their experiences.

The research questions were:

  • What models are there for ICT CPD?
  • What are the key factors in ensuring that ICT CPD affects pedagogy and practice?
