This study investigated teachers' professional learning and pedagogy as they grappled with the challenges and implications of using new information and communications technologies (ICT) in their classrooms. It contributes to knowledge about the way teachers learn and change, their pedagogical interventions, the impact of different professional learning strategies, and identification of issues connected with the transition from personal learning to collegial and organizational learning. It also informs educational practice in terms of four major uses of ICT in classrooms: i)Digital information resources and new literacy demands; ii)Collaborative online projects; iii)Animation and multiliteracies development; iv)ICT and early numeracy development.
