This paper aims at finding a way to evaluate the impact of ICT on teaching. It is taken for granted, in the light of previous studies,that regular control of teaching and learning processes helps improve these same processes. Secondly, the use of ICT does not automatically improve the quality of teaching and learning. Therefore it is necessary to constantly evaluate how effective the use of ICT in the classroom really is. Five models will be illustrated into which any teaching project can fit. Finally, the application of the five-model theory to a sample group of Italian Junior High Schools will be illustrated.
