Abstract

This study investigates the network problems of the knowledge dissemination of ICT-in-education practices using an egocentric survey method to school technology coordinators (STCs). A conceptual framework of knowledge competitions is developed to inspect the significant and effective ties of knowledge dissemination. The results indicate that interactive predictability of effective sizes and significant ties to knowledge competitions can reveal the effects on competitive advantages. Based on this predictability, a person's knowledge-contribution to a network of ICT-integration instruction is classified as ineffective with less positional and informational benefits. These findings help confront the deficiency of the achievements of ICT integration instructions and encourage reconsidering the role of STCs in ICT-in-education practices.
