  • Not about software/ replacing hard copies with soft copies, it’s about pedagogy! Its about structuring your lessons to allow students to learn through ICT, internet, each other. Multi-tasking =/= learning more. Just like skimming for information =/= learning faster ICT lessons still require very sound pedagogy. More experienced teachers are actually at an advantage, they just need to learn the tools/platforms.
