The aim of the research was to undertake a baseline study to determine the use of electronic learning resources in Gauteng provincial schools. The baseline study used a survey instrument based on an e-maturity framework and is part of a larger project. The research design exploits a development design framework that integrates design experiments and analytical design research approaches. Results show that successful use of Information and Communication Technology to support student performance is dependent on learning and teaching practices, and on leadership and management. In addition, the research identified the most e-mature schools that will participate in the next phase of the research to understand more fully the complex interactions that are part of the “ecologies of practice” within every school. This research will attempt to identify the “keystone species” who take the lead in the use of ICTs to support student cognitive development.
