This presentation stems from a larger study about about how information and communication technologies (ICT) are used by teachers to support students’ learning. The ‘borrowed literacy pedagogy’ is the pedagogy of reading to, with and by students. In my re-analysis of the interview data, it became apparent that the teachers used an approach similar to this reading pedagogy in how they used ICT in their classroom practice to support students’ learning. In the ‘to, with and by’ pedagogy, there is no hierarchy within the three different modes, but rather all modes serve a purpose when teachers use ICT to support students’ learning in authentic ways. Teachers need to have technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) in order to plan effective use of ICT to support the learning experiences of students.
