Abstract: The basis of this research was to evaluate and analyse the implementation of laptops as a teaching tool to enhance the work of teachers at Tereora College. The study was approached from both a qualitative and a quantitative perspective, in which I examined the skills of 27 teachers in the school using laptops as teaching tools. Questionnaires and interviews were carried out to gather data. Data show that laptops as teaching tools enhance teachers work and simplify the teachers’ experience at Tereora College. However, the results also demonstrate that these improvements are limited for both teachers and students. The report concludes that teachers need more computer training and literacy in order to maximise the benefits of using laptops as teaching tools.
