ICT INTEGRATION TRENDS AND PRACTICES IN COLLEGE CLASSROOMS

M. Chowdhury

Walden University / Assiniboine College (CANADA)
Technology integration is not a new concept to educators, and colleges invest a significant amount of money to acquire modern information and communication technologies (ICT). Despite the rapid development of ICT, improved access to ICT-based educational technology, and the financial investments of educational institutions, faculty members do not always take advantage of modern ICT. One problem is that teaching practices have not always kept pace with, nor benefited from, advances in ICT. Technologies are not always effectively integrated into instruction to enhance teaching and learning. This study investigated the trend and practices of ICT integration as instructional tool by college professors. Roger’s theory of diffusion of innovation, and instructional and learning were the foundation for this study. The researcher obtained descriptive data about the current practice and trend of ICT use in college classrooms. Faculty members from 4 Canadian colleges participated in this survey-based, nonexperimental research. This research contributes to the literature by providing current knowledge about ICT integration in higher education and will help educators, researchers, and policymakers establish more reasonable ICT integration practices.
