CHAPTER ONE

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Generally, three objectives are distinguished for the use of ICT in education (Plomp et al, 2016):

  1. The use of ICT as objects of study; refers to learning about ICT, which enables students to use ICT in their daily life.
  2. The use of ICT as aspect of discipline or profession; refers to the development of ICT skills for professional or vocational purposes.

It is a fact that teachers are at the centre of curriculum change and they control the teaching and learning process. Therefore, they must be able to prepare young people for the society in which the competency to use ICT to acquire and process information is very important.

Several studies argue that the use of new technologies in the classroom is essential for providing opportunities for students to learn to operate in an information age. It is evident, Yelland (2011) as argued that traditional educational environments do not seem to be suitable for preparing learners to function or be productive in the workplaces of today’s society. She claimed that organizations that do not incorporate the use of new technologies in institutions cannot seriously claim to prepare their students for life in the twenty-first century. This argument is supported by Grimus [2010], who pointed out that “by teaching ICT skills in educational institutions the students are prepared to face future based on proper understanding” (p. 362).
