It is now over twenty years since the Victorian state government began its mainstream implementation of ICT into Victorian state schools. Many millions of dollars has been spent on putting ICT into schools, and in helping teachers to develop knowledge and skills to use them in their practice. As time goes on, there is a very real chance that we will forget how and why we got to be where we are. This paper in an attempt to remind us of this past, reflect son the early years of ICT implementation into Victorian schools. Three key areas of ICT implementation form the focus of this reflection: access and infrastructure, content, and professional development. Particular attention is given to initiatives such as the Navigator schools project, the curriculum@work project and the Teacher notebook Program. This paper suggests that as we continue to utilize ICT in our practice, and plan for ways forward, we could perhaps learn more from the past.
