In this weeks learning journey for EDC3100 the question was asked:
How will you measure the success of ICT integration into your teaching?
If the use of the ICTs in my teaching were successful they would enhance the students learning. The ICTs would be vital to the learning experience and students would be engaged and exited while learning.
Aditi Rao is an American technology resource specialist. He created this list that is from his blog to show what he believes is the difference between using technology and technology integration.
