    Abstract

    The paper reports on the implementation phase of a major E learning project in South Yorkshire, England. A longitudinal case study approach is being used to monitor how secondary schools are using the additional resources that come into schools, which started at different stages in maturity in the use of ICT. These have been mapped against recently established UK maturity models. The main findings are that effective school leadership, understanding of the change management process, and engagement of staff are all very important for success. The project has been very successful in meeting targets for numbers of pupils gaining ICT qualifications – which will impact on their future employment and contribute to the economic regeneration of the region.
