    Abstract

    From the perspective of curriculum innovation the teacher has a central role in implementing an innovation in educational practice. Many factors are influencing successful implementation, of which good quality products and materials provide a powerful starting point for teacher inservice training activities. As in many educational systems, teachers are free to decide whether or not to use computers as a medium in their teaching approach, it is important to take into account in the design of inservice training the problems teachers are experiencing when using computers. Finally, consequences of the curriculum innovation perspective for the design of in-service training are discussed.
