Its aim. was to enable teachers to use ICT in their teaching.\ud The study begins with a literature review of both educational change and ICT in education.\ud It reaches in conclusions on appropriate strategies of developing the use of ICT in schools.\ud Next a methodology chapter reviews the nature of case studies and explains the mixed\ud methods approach in this thesis. Findings are then reported. First the perceptions of\ud teachers who took part in the training. Next, the perceptions of their teacher-trainers. Next,\ud me perceptions of the head-teachers in the schools in which the teachers worked. Finally,\ud the perceptions of the people who designed the training programme.\ud The report shows both shortcomings and positive aspects of the training and in particular\ud points to the very limited impact it had on teachers' practice. A concept map offers a\ud clearer picture of the data while illustrating any causal relationships.\ud A further investigation of the Greek educational culture is offered and this provides a new\ud dimension for understanding the results
