Whether the Use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the Classroom Increases Levels of Engagement in Primary School Students Aged 5-12
Becoming more and more common in the classroom, ICT has established itself as a valuable education tool. Like all educational tools, the effectiveness and benefits can be measured by their ability to engage the students in their work. This research sought to determine how information and communication technology can be used in the classroom to engage students of all ages. Through a quantitative framework using a questionnaire, this study aimed to collect information provided by educators relating to student engagement through ICT and refine it down to a manner understandable to the classroom teacher. The preliminary results of the research show that ICT is utilised in the classroom on a daily basis, with multiple dimensions being implemented by both the teachers and the students. The conclusion can also be drawn that students’ level of engagement is dependent on the teachers’ willingness and ability to incorporate ICT.
