A growing number of education systems are exploring the potential of e-learning to improve outcomes for students. There is also a great deal of hype about this; at times it seems as if e-learning tools are perceived to be an educational silver bullet. While a number of studies report on the success of using particular tools such as interactive whiteboards (IWBs) or report on how to create digital products like podcasts for educational purposes, few make explicit links to learning outcomes. When they do, the links appear to be tenuous. A stronger theme in research associated with this topic is the effects on teachers' pedagogical practices. This paper outlines key themes from a synthesis of research published over the last five years that principally link e-learning, outcomes and pedagogy in school settings. The aim of this article is to demonstrate a relationship between pedagogy, technological tools and the role of teachers.
