The iTEaCH Implementation Model: Adopting a Best-Fit Approach to Implementing ICT in Schools
Choy, Michael
Educational Media International, v50 n4 p281-290 2013
Schools have seen an exponential increase in the range of information communication technology (ICT) being utilised for learning and teaching over the past decade, especially with the advent of the internet. What is exciting is not just more technology, but that there are more types of technology which teachers can pick and choose from, based on their own pedagogical preferences. Set in the context of a private school in Singapore, the study suggests that a best-fit approach across pedagogy, technology and collegiality may be a compelling proposition to implementing ICT in schools. The study recommends the use of two new terms "Technogogy" and "Teachnology" along with Collegiality in the iTEaCH (ICT-Technogogy-and-Collegiality Holistic) Implementation Model, to better describe the ICT implementation process in schools.
