AbstractThis article discusses research undertaken to document the processof introducing and using information and communication technology (ICT) inthe secondary schools of Mozambique in the last three years of the 20thcentury. The research takes the form of a case study focused on the internet forSchools Project (IFSP), which is considered the first attempt to integratecomputer-assisted education in Mozambique. The study identifies someimportant collateral aspects that developing countries should not underestimatewhen planning the dissemination of ICT in schools to accelerate the country’sfuture participation as an active member of the global information society. Weask three questions: “What happened? What worked? What did not work?” Wethen propose some recommendations for implementing computers in schools inother developing countries.
