dc.description.abstract Computer technology in South African schools has been integrated into the curriculum to improve the standard of teaching and learning. This study explores the integration of computer technology into the curriculum in previously disadvantaged high schools in Umlazi, KwaZulu-Natal. The results from this study state very clear that educators in previously disadvantaged high schools in Umlazi do not integrate computer technology into the curriculum. The educators are not trained to integrate computer technology into the curriculum. In these schools there were educators who were not computer literate. There were also schools who did not teach computer technology because the computers in the schools were not enough to meet the needs of the learners. This study recommends that the South African Government need to provide support services to previously disadvantaged high schools. The government should make sure that all educators in previously disadvantaged high schools are trained to use computers and able to integrate computer technology into the various learning areas. Finally the government should make sure that each previously disadvantaged school has at least one computer laboratory as a starting point. en_US
