Management of Technology in Education Projects
The Jamaica Computer Society Education Foundation
This paper relates the experience of the Jamaica Computer Society Education Foundation, since 1991, in placing various instructional models in Jamaican primary, secondary and tertiary public schools, and highlights some unique strategies used to ensure the sustainability and institutionalization of the programme. Particular emphasis is placed on the strategies used to ensure the integrity of the intervention and to secure the participation of all the stakeholders—the government, the schools, the school community, the business community and donor agencies. The paper also addresses the efforts made to begin to decentralize the management and administration of the programme and create pockets of excellence in technology leadership throughout the country.
