Abstract/Summary Within an IT environment, the teacher’s role has changed from transmitting knowledge to managing IT resources for learning and facilitating student learning. Thus, the teacher planned for improving classroom teaching practice by playing these two roles, particularly in computing laboratory sessions. Students within each computing laboratory session were divided into small groups so as to enable teacher’s intervention to offer assistance or directives within each group more efficiently. A question which arises here is how the teacher’s intervention promoted learning and statistical thinking of students when using IT in a statistics classroom. A questionnaire based survey was then conducted to study the attitudes of students towards teacher’s intervention within IT environment. The results of the survey indicated that the teacher played facilitating and supporting roles in their learning to foster a learning atmosphere, restructure learning tasks and provide feedback.
