ICT for Teaching and ICT for Learning: They are not the same (HTML) Resource

Robert Douglas - Howick College

Overview

In 2010 I suggested that ICT in schools can be considered as having three distinct but overlapping roles. These are ICT for school administration, ICT for teaching and ICT for student learning (Douglas, 2010). However, developments in technology, and particularly the rise in ‘smart phones’ and tablet-based technologies such as the iPad, have magnified the difference between ICT for teaching and ICT for learning. Schools need to fully understand the difference between the two and how this will impact both their ICT infrastructure, and also how they may wish to provision the school with devices.
