Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether changes have occurred in the teacher's professional pedagogical role as a result of the implementation of ICT in the schools, from the point of view of the principal and administrative staff of the school. The study was conducted in Israel, using the qualitative method and included eight semi-structured in-depth interviews with the administrative staff of elementary schools: the principal, the assistant principal, the computer coordinator, the grade coordinator and the teacher. The research findings suggest that the program does influence the teacher in a number of aspects: the teacher is required to rethink his teaching methods and increase his team work with his work staff and colleagues. In addition, the results highlight the need for the teacher's continued professional development in the field of computerization.
