In contemporary society, the use of ICT within pedagogies is being proven to be more and more effective for numerous reasons. Digital technology enables schools, classrooms, communities and individuals to become connected, ultimately allowing lines of communication for learning. This not only benefits individuals who are unable to commute to school, enabling students to become updated with content learnt in class and not fall behind, but it also allows a greater revenue for teaching resources for educators. Therefore, digital technology is applicable to all subject areas across classroom curricula.
There are countless reasons why ICT and Pedagogy are an effective tool within contemporary classrooms. A concept map that outlines numerous advantages of the inclusion of ICT within learning episodes was posted on a blog, written by Maggie Stevens. Another blog written by Courtney Green also highlights the advantages ICT has for both students and teachers.
