Influences of the Mandated Presence of ICT in Saudi Arabia Secondary Schools

A. Alenezi
Abstract—In the Saudi Arabia secondary school context, ICT integration is simultaneously the product of a mandate to ICT adoption and the ultimate goal of the education reform. This study utilizes an implementation, Concerns-Based Adoption Model, evaluation, and grounded theory approach together with a thematic analysis to explore the ways of making ICT integration in Saudi schools strategic by identifying stages of concern and levels of use, determining technical, political, and cultural implementation factors, and studying the ways of balancing technology with Islamic values in three specific subject domains (mathematics, science, and Arabic).The findings indicate that mandatory uses of ICT integration impede the transition from ICT adoption to ICT implementation within the overall education reform.

Index Terms—ICT adoption, ICT integration, integration pedagogy, implementation factors.
