INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES By Prof. Mushtaq Ahmed I. Patel[1] and Mohammed Jahangeer Ali[2]

Abstract

 The world is fast becoming a global village as a result of the development in information and communication technology. Information and communications Technology (ICT) has the potential to improve all aspects of our social, economic educational and cultural life. ICT has played an important role in formal and non-formal educational settings; ICT is being utilized in every part of life. Education even at school stage has to provide computer instruction. Technology when it fits comfortably with the curriculum or instructional plans of teaching is an indicative of integrated technology. Thus, technology rather than an additional layer in the classroom is embedded within the design of the teacher’s lesson plan and the pedagogy. 

Keywords: ICT, Integration of ICT.
