This paper proposes a study to investigate the development of key skills within physical education with a main focus on Information Communication Technology (ICT) and teachers' opinions surrounding this key skill. It attempts to understand what motivates teachers to use ICT and the impact ICT has on physical education when integrated at Key Stage 3. It also examines issues such as funding, training, resources, age and finding the time to implement this key skill without losing practical time.

From the Paper:

"The Government's push for ICT to be recognised as an important key skill within compulsory education has received widespread support, and many writers have commented on its possibilities. Leask and Williams (1999) described the importance of the integration of ICT into the Curriculum, and agree with the DfEE when describing network literacy as "a vital extension of the ability to read and write". (p 194). This was also confirmed by research evidence found by Bonnet et al (1999) who agreed that, with sufficient support, interactive ICT in particular has the potential to develop qualities of evaluation, independence and responsibility in children's learning and understanding."
