AbstractThis paper addresses the successes and limitations of "turn-key" technology training in nine K-12 Educational sites in the Mid-Atlantic Region. It is a follow-up study, seven years after an original year-long, 1993 investigation (Goss, 1995) of Internet use in K-12 schools and regional support centers. The 1995 study of turn-key users of Internet, five key factors emerged that determined the success of their scale-up efforts. This follow-up study revisits those early Internet adopters. Through analysis of survey and interview data, the study sheds additional light on earlier findings, while illuminating the successes of those with broad-based administrative support and a thoughtful technology dissemination plan.
