Literature review for the evaluation of the digital opportunities projects

Sally Boyd

This literature review is focused on international and New Zealand evaluations of "technology-rich" information and communication technologies (ICT) initiatives in schools from 1990 onwards.

This review is in four sections; the first provides background on the literature review, the digital divide, and the Digital Opportunities projects in New Zealand; the second overviews major international initiatives similar to the Digital Opportunities projects and includes key websites; the third summarises information from evaluations and research of projects similar to the four Digital Opportunities projects; and the fourth presents conclusions.

An annotated bibliography is provided with the Digital Opportunities review. This bibliography provides a summary of each initiative and its associated evaluation.

The report is available from the Ministry of Education at:
