WHY DO TEACHERS EDUCATORS NOT PRACTICE WHAT THEY BELIEVE: ICT INTEGRATION GAPS

A. Khokhar

Forman Christian College (A Chartered University) (PAKISTAN)
No one else better than a teacher educator (TE) knows the importance of effective integration of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) into teaching and learning and its role in enhancing learning, both in schools and at homes. This study investigates how TE integrated ICT in their teaching and how they support PT to integrate ICT in their practice lessons during their practice teaching time. The case study method was used for this study. The researcher spent 2 weeks with 9 TE of three different teacher education colleges. The researcher gathered information from TE and PT using a questionnaire about their beliefs and practices regarding ICT integration. TE was observed teaching and a lesson observation form was used to record observations. The TE believed that it was important to integrate ICT to better communicate content to students but their practices did not show this belief being practiced. The PT felt themselves poorly prepared to choose appropriate technology in their teaching as they did not see TE using ICT creatively and effectively in their classrooms. The study recommends TE to use creative teaching and assessment strategies that could support PT in exploring different ICT devices and learning their effective use.
