ICT use in general terms is any use of “computing devices such as desktop computers, laptops, software, or Internet for instructional purposes” (Hew & Brush, 2007, p. 225). ICT is the modern technology that be useful for student as a learning tool. Moreover, teachers also use ICT for instructional preparation and instructional delivery. So, ICT is the use of technology for students and teacher in education(Inan & Lowther, 2010). Besides, the important factor that can shape the effective application of ICT for educational is the teachers’ attitudes(Albirini, 2006; Hermans et al., 2008). ICT, the computer for example is a great help in the constructivist approach, where one can design simulated and individualized learning environments to students. So, there are several advantages of using ICT as a tool for teaching and learning process in higher education institution. The advantages are improve the efficiency in educational process, improve in the quality of work and attract student’s interest in learning.

...Evaluate the Effectiveness of UsingICT to Support Teaching and Learning
The use of ICT to support teaching and learning incorporates more than the obvious use of computers in the classroom. It includes technology that is used to help children with disabilities. For example children with hearing impairments may need to use hearing aids which is a piece of technology that allows the child to have enhanced hearing. There are six types of hearing aids open to those with hearing impairments; completely in the canal, which fits inside the canal of the ear and due to this it is easily hidden. As it is a small hearing aid it has a short battery life and it can be used for those with mild to moderate hearing loss. In the canal, is a larger version of the completely in the canal hearing aid, so it doesn’t usually fit smaller ears. It is also used for mild to moderate hearing loss. The half shell hearing aid is custom made to the person’s lower outer ear which contains a microphone and volume controls, its helps people with mild to moderate hearing loss. The full shell is also custom made, but it fits the whole outer ear so therefore is not easily hidden. It can be used for a larger severity of hearing loss from mild to severe. The behind the ear hearing aids are the strongest type that is available, it covers mild hearing loss to severe hearing loss. Lastly, an open fit hearing aid...

...Understanding and Using Inclusive Teaching and Learning Approaches in Education and Training
1.1. Inclusive learning is about recognising that all your students have the right to be treated equally and fairly, have the same access to all products, services and have the opportunity to be involved and included. As a teacher you need to be aware that all students are not the same as they all do not learn in the same way, the ways in which a teacher can overcome this is using the Teaching and Learning Cycle, using visual, auditory and kinaesthetic materials (VAK) and agreeing on individual learning plans (ILPs). Other features could include self reflective exercises, quizzes and providing opportunities for students to reflect on their own experiences and consider how these experiences influence the way they learn.
1.2. There are a number of strengths and limitations of learning approaches when teaching. For example, a strength can include an activity and/or a demonstration in pairs or groups, a questionnaire and a power point presentation. The limitations could be when working in group sessions, a shy person can hide in a group, more confident people can take over and there could be a possible clash of personalities.
Using all learning styles need to kept to a minimum as...
...The Role of ICT in Improving Teaching and Learning for Sustainable Development
By Ikwueto Oliver
The emergence of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in education has transformed teaching and learning to a more viable and effective method and would likely set the standard for the future. Iloeje (2002) asserts that the interactivity ineducation and learning techniques brought about by the new technology has created a whole new learning environment and transformed the relationship among science teachers and the learners. The result is that the ways and means of packaging and delivering information have changed. Information users desire a wave of service different from the traditional paper based. Liverpool (2001) notes that this new wave of ICT has affected Universities, Polytechnics, Monotechnics and Colleges of
Education greatly as an information provider in the society. These institutions struggle to maintain their credibility in the provision of adequate materials for research, teaching and learning through the acceptance and use of information and communication technology (ICT).
