Information and Communication Technology, or ICT, refers to technological tools that are used to communicate and to manage information.
Interactive Whiteboards are an example of ICT.
In the classroom
ICT is often part of a teacher-centred class but it is easy to exploit these tools in learner-centred activities. For example, learners can control a cassette or DVD, stopping it each time they hear a contraction, develop their own class blog on the Internet with minimum teacher involvement, or use a computer in a multi-media area to present their findings from a pre-reading task.
