The progress of the Digitally Boosted Study Support Centre Pilot, one of the four Digital Opportunities projects, is reported for the period January 2002 to December 2003. The project involved four study support centres located in three low decile schools and one marae in Christchurch and Invercargill. These centres piloted the use of a computer based boost to their after school activities.
One of the research questions was to identify ‘lessons which have been learned from the pilot which could usefully inform any roll out of the scheme to other schools and to other school districts.’ This summary begins by listing the evaluator’s perceptions regarding key lessons and suggestions. These are followed by a summary of findings and lessons categorized under headings corresponding to the main focus of the research.
