dc.description.abstract Drawing on research conducted within the context of a ‘Laptops Initiative’ for students with literacy difficulties in Irish post-primary schools, this chapter describes a mobile ICT deployment model (fixed, floating and fostered) that emerged from the project. In doing so it prvides a useful visualisation of what an effective ICT organisational arrangement ‘looks like’ in schools that successfully implemented the mainstream application of mobile ICT. It also outlines particular cultural and contextual conditions which enabled those schools to ‘move beyond a state of stuck’ vis-à-vis their practice and conceptualisation of the role of ICT, and to change their routines and methods in order for students with literacy difficulties to achieve the benefits of technology-enhanced inclusive learning. en_US
