A Generic Model for Guiding the Integration of ICT into Teaching and Learning

IETI Volume 45, Number 4, ISSN 1470-3297


Effective integration of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) into teaching and learning is becoming an essential competency for teachers. However, teachers do not usually follow linear instructional design models when they are planning for ICT integration. This paper proposes a generic model, which consists of three fundamental elements: pedagogy, social interaction and technology. Sound design of these components should help teachers to integrate ICT into their curricula in effective ways. Constructivist learning theories, the design of interactivity and the notion of usefulness provide the theoretical foundations for the construction of this model. Some examples of applying this model to the design of Web-based learning environments, facilitation of online discussions and comparison of ICT tools are presented. (Contains 1 table and 4 figures.)
