Abstract

This paper explores how trainee teachers in
physical education (PE) are supported in their
use of information communication technology (ICT)
during their school-based experiences. The data were
collected from within the context of a higher education
institution (HEI) and school partnership in the South
East of England. All of the schools approached
had previously worked, or were working, with
trainee teachers from the University of East London
(UEL). These data were initially collected by using
questionnaires sent out to 100 PE teachers. Following
initial analysis of these data, three semi-structured
interviews were carried out with the hope of developing
ICT provision within the HEI and discovering how
best to support school-based mentors and trainees.
There was evidence of lots of good examples of work
within the partnership but little to support the fact
that teachers were sharing this. It is clear that, in this
particular case, the potential of the use of ICT in PE
has not been unlocked by the profession as yet.
