      • 1. The QEP is the vision, ICT is the tool
      • ICT supports the implementation of the QEP
      • Whenever teachers have used ICT in a project-based approach, they have made great strides in their implementation of the QEP
    • 11. Common Discussion and Consensus Points
      • 2. Pedagogy first; technology second
      • when discussing any aspect of technology, it was understood that pedagogy comes first, and technology is at its service
      • this applies when ICT departments are looking to implement or configure infrastructure, hardware and software
      • it also applies to teacher and leadership training, the focus should be on using ICT as a tool for learning
    • 12. Common Discussion and Consensus Points
      • 3. Research: The theme of research came up in several circumstances:
