SKU: IOEPS-6-1

The integration of technology in education and training processes is grad­ually being recognized as an imperative that cannot be ignored, in the context of what has been generally accepted as being the "Information Age".

Free
SKU: IOEPS-6-4

The call for teachers, administrators and other facilitators of learning to integrate technology in education has been an ongoing one for many years, ever since the term "instructional technology" was first clearly defined in the 1970s, or perhaps even before.
