THE IMPACT OF ICT INTEGRATION ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE TEACHER TRAINING CURRICULUM AT THE COLLEGES OF EDUCATION IN NAMIBIA

S.M. Lipinge

University of Namibia (NAMIBIA)
The desire to exploit the new opportunities created by the use of Information Communications Technologies (ICTs) necessitated the Namibian government after few years of independence to embark upon on developing national policies and strategies integrating ICTs into the education curriculum. The need for ICT integration and application in the entire educational system has become a national policy in which teacher training institutions are expected to integrate ICT across the curriculum aimed at achieving Level 4 in terms of use, knowledge and expected teaching competency in order to contribute to Namibia becoming a Knowledge based Economy (KE).

Given this background, the paper investigated the impact of ICT integration at teacher training institutions in Namibia as perceived by both teacher educators and student teachers. The results and conclusions seek to educate, inform and share the experience of ICT integration of teacher educators and students teachers in Namibia. Finally, the discussions and recommendations that will be given in this paper will be useful not only to the teacher training institutions in Namibia but also to similar institutions across the globe.
