Teaching with ICT prepares teachers to teach with ICT rather than focusing on technologies. This book shows teachers how ICTs can be used effectively as learning tools. It introduces the key theories for integrating ICTs into lessons, and explains the types of ICTs that are currently used in the field of education. It draws on useful concepts from developmental psychology so that the ICTs used at the different grades are age-appropriate. In addition, the book examines local and international policy initiatives that try to harness the potential of ICT learning.
