Abstract

One of the key successes in university education reform process is the link between ICT and methodological strategies for teaching and learning. Nowadays, nobody doubts the integration of ICT in the learning process. In university context, for instance, ICTs are very relevant because it is expected that they encourage a culture of self- and lifelong- learning. Moreover, ICTs are crucial for achieving not only these goals, but also for enabling freedom of expression and communication. There is no best way to learn a foreign language. This is because learners vary both in how they learn and what they need and want to learn. It follows therefore that ICT do not perform magical results in teaching. However looking at the current ways of language teaching, and at the future teaching strategies, there are a number of key roles that ICTs have the potential to fulfil in teaching and learning. My paper was built on a theoretical base which was developed specifically to account for the mediating impact of ICT on teaching and learning. After briefly defining and introducing the different types that ICT encompasses, along with some of their benefits; my paper will then focus on the impact of ICT on education. ICT can be used in education in two different ways: as a subject (learning to use ICT) and as a tool (using ICT to learn). The use of ICT is seen as supporting a shift from teacher-centric to learner-centric education, an important learning in research and higher education. However, the marriage between higher education and ICT cannot be celebrated on an infertile ground. This brings me to the next point, i.e. the different barriers that prevent effective ICT use and integration. My paper will also offer background research findings about the current state of ICT in Sétif. Results obtained will show teachers' accessibility to ICT equipment, knowledge, use, integration, training needs, attitudes towards ICT and obstacles. I will end up with providing some recommendations and substantial solutions for teachers and policies
