TEACHERS, TEACHING AND ICTs:
- What do we know about successful pedagogical strategies utilizing ICTs for teaching and learning?

- What do we know about the impact of ICTs on teacher motivation?
Role of the teacher:
Teachers remain central to the learning process:
A shift in the role of a teacher utilizing ICTs to that of a facilitator does not obviate the need for teachers to serve as leaders in the classroom; traditional teacher leadership skills and practices are still important (especially those related to lesson planning, preparation and follow-up).
Lesson planning is crucial when using ICTs:
Teacher lesson planning is vital when using ICTs; where little planning has occurred, research shows that student work is often unfocused and can result in lower attainment.
