This article explores the viability of implementing a technology learning programme in a school for learners with special educational needs. TechnEd (the former RAUTEC), Bernina, the school and the Gauteng Department of Education were involved in the project. The nature of the project required a qualitative, action research approach using group interviewing, observation and narratives to gather data. The action research allowed for evaluation, planning and action after every session. Qualitative data analysis methods were applied. The project had the following educational value for the learners: cognitive, personal and social skill development.

Die aard van die projek het 'n kwalitatiewe aksienavorsingsbenadering genoodsaak wat groeponderhoude, waarneming en narratiewe gebruik om die data te versamel. Die aksienavorsing het evaluering, beplanning en optrede na elke sessie moontlik gemaak. Kwalitatiewe dataontledingsmetodes is gebruik.
