    Abstract

    In this study, I explore the introduction of a virtual mentoring programme as an alternative to a traditional face-to-face mentorship programme to provide ongoing professional development. I detail how participants in the virtual mentoring programme reported increased levels of self-confidence, knowledge and skill in integrating information and communication technologies (“ICT”) into their teaching practices. Moreover, the findings indicate that open communication, support and encouragement were integral components in enabling teachers to take risks and to see the potential of ICT in their own teaching practices.
