Given the importance of computer technology in classrooms today, it is crucial to identify the types of supports that can facilitate teachers’ effective implementation of technology. The present study examined the impact of just-in-time instruction for a group of teachers using a web-based reading intervention program with their kindergarten, grade one, and grade two classrooms. Teacher outcomes were assessed using survey and observational methods. Qualitative analyses of instructional sessions indicated that teachers required the greatest level of support from on-site, in classroom aides when a new program was introduced, with requests for support diminishing over time. Results also identified the kinds of supports required from teachers when planning and implementing new software as well as the kinds of supports that teachers were hesitant to request. This study provides a foundation for understanding the supports required by teachers in order to ease the transition to computer based learning.
