This chapter describes the results of the international option that was included in SITES 2006. The international option, which was part of the teacher questionnaire, solicited responses from teachers on satisfying experiences in their pedagogical use of ICT. Twenty-one of the participating education systems took part in this option, the purpose of which was to follow up on earlier research into innovative pedagogical practices employing substantial use of ICT that was carried out as part of SITES Module 1 and SITES Module 2 (SITES-MI and SITES-M2).

In this optional component, teachers who used ICT extensively were asked to provide a brief description of the one pedagogical practice involving ICT-use in the target class that they had found the most satisfying. With the description of this practice in mind, teachers were then asked to answer questions reflecting the contribution of ICT to changes in student outcomes and to changes in teaching practices. They were also asked if students or teachers were the main people to initiate several aspects of teaching and learning. The international option aimed to help answer the following research question for SITES 2006: What ICT was used and how was it used in specific situations where ICT has been used relatively extensively within the pedagogical practice?
