Global and Local


Positioning of ICT
Globally, ICT has dramatically
reshaped the teaching and learning
processes.
It has become a tools for teaching, learning,
curriculum and staff development etc.

ICT usage in Higher Education (HE) of


Developing Economy (DE) is more
critical today than ever before.
Sadly, ICT advantages are often underutilised in the DE.
Titus Olaniyi and Emmanuel
Ademola (2013)

Poor Adoptions of ICT in


DE
Research suggested that ICT
adoptions in HE of DE are often
poorly implemented due to
unfounded optimism and
serious obstacles.
Regrettably, significant numbers of
academia are still hesitant or reluctant
to adopt ICT in their teaching tasks.

Ademola (2013)

The Dilemma!

There are no holistic


solutions to the problems
of ICT adoption as is
often seen as a mere
technical issue.

State of Art!
There is urgent need to provide proactive
institutional support, technical training, and
time to faculty members.
E-learning is becoming an effective mechanism
of delivering educational materials; technology
awareness, motivation, and changing learners
behaviour.
Nigerian students must develop their ICT
abilities in an integrative teaching and
learning environment.
Regrettably, many institutions in Nigeria have
invested heavily in the use of ICT but its benefits are
yet to be manifested.

Way Forward - 1!

Effective integration
of ICT will depend on
larger socio-cultural
and technical
environment.

Conclusions

Integrating ICT
in Higher Education Classrooms

Various methodological approaches


are essential and integral parts of
modern teaching and learning.
Personal development, supportive
learning environment and resources
adequacy (amongst others!) should be
available for integrative teaching,
learning and development.
