Abstract—The successful integration of information and communication technologies (ICT) into educational settings has become key factor for all educators. The information revolution is linked with the knowledge economy and Globalization. The knowledge economy is dependent on people’s ability to adapt new situations, update their knowledge, know where to find the knowledge (networking), and to apply it to new situations. Globalization is another factor emerging within the knowledge economy, which has been led by an increasing awareness of interdependence in world affairs, and partly attributed to advances in communications and information technology. ICTs refer to a set of diverse technological tools and resources to create, disseminate, store, evaluate, circulate and manage information. With the advent of ICT we have acquired new dimensions such as that of ICT access, ICT capacity-building, ICT facilities, ICT employability and these technologies can be used to facilitate the development of online communities in which all participants collaborate to discuss, reflect on deepen their understanding of learning. The new communication technology especially Internet and mobile technology, leads to publicize the information. The objective of this paper is how ICT based teaching in classroom activities can produce significant changes both in the nature of the knowledge imparting and in the nature of the processes involved in acquiring it. The purpose is to give a brief idea about this new trend in higher education to boost towards utilizing information and communication technologies (ICT) to the fullest extent.
