Abstract

Infusing technology in teaching and learning has become a national norm. Teachers are expected to have good computer skills and know how to integrate technology effectively in the curriculum. At present, most classrooms have some computers, and students are enthusiastic about using them. Computers seem to have provided great potentials to enrich the classroom teaching and to improve teachers’ productivity. However, in real life, after advocating the computer technology for education for over two decades, very few schools have integrated it into their curriculum. In addition, most teachers do not feel comfortable about using it. In order to infuse computers in the curriculum, teachers should know not just how to use computers themselves, but also how to engage their students in active learning with computers. In other words, we need more technology-literate and enthusiastic teachers.
