Introduction: ICT in Education• ICT make natural tools in education because of the simple and fundamental fact that learning is largely based on dealing with information.• In education, ICT is considered part of a solution to addressing to changing learning needs of societies. (Garrison & Anderson, 2006)
Learning Outcomes:• Increase knowlegde and understanding on the rapidly changing field of information and communications technologies.• Distinguish between technology-centered and learner-centered approaches of using ICT in teaching -learning process.• They will be able to know the world wide use of ICT in education specially in teaching- learning process with the help of examples.
Prospective Learners:• Secondary School Teachers• Primary School Teachers• Pre-Service Teachers• Anyone interested to learn the use of ICT in education.
Need for the instruction:• Teachers in Pakistan and in some other countries particularly the teachers working in public schools get very limited opportunities for training in ICT. So this multimedia instruction program(in the form of CD and website) will be easily available to them where they can learn the fundamental concepts of ICT as well as learn its meaningful utilization in the teaching-learning process.
Rationale for Multimedia:• Multiple formats of multimedia (text, images, videos/animations) used in the tutorial will not only help them in rote learning but also in understanding the presented concepts and ideas of ICT integration in education. That will allow them to use their understanding in their particular subjects and situations.
