Information Communications Technology

The positive impact of technology


Information Communications Technology (ICT) is an essential foundation of education transformation, providing the tools needed to enhance teaching and learning and support student-centered learning environments. Effective eLearning environments are created using powerful PCs, relevant education software, broadband internet access, and an infrastructure with robust servers.

ICT enables improved learning results by providing access to information and content experts, facilitating collaboration, encouraging creation, improving communication, and supporting assessments. It allows students to gain important skills using the same modern technology they’ll use after graduation in the business world.

In addition, use of ICT has resulted in improvements in teacher attitude, student interest, student discipline, and student achievement.
