Abstract: The problem of integrating technology into the teaching and learning process has become a perennial one. Common excuses for the limited use of technology to support instruction include computer intimidation, shortage of computers, lack of computer skill, lack of technical support, scheduling issues and compartmentalization of subject disciplines. The degree of success teachers have in using technology for instruction could depend on their ability to explore the relationship between pedagogy and technology. Educators tend to have a narrow view of instructional technology, resulting in a mechanistic use of technology for teaching. Failure to recognize instructional technology as part of pedagogical process hampers teachers’ efforts to implement technology in the classroom. The essence of this paper is to provide insight into the pedagogical considerations which are likely to be helpful in technology integration.
