Why ICT is different?

I think ICT is different from traditional learning in a lot of ways. For one thing it involves computers, iPads and other electrical devices rather than pen and paper but that’s an obvious difference. Using ICTs is often something that is more engaging and exciting for students than traditional learning as well which makes it ideal for learning and classroom use. (O’Rourke, 2002). When students are engaged like this it is easier to then develop individual pedagogy to help them learn what they need to learn for where they are in their learning. With traditional learning maintaining student engagement is much harder than with ICTs.
