Singaporean Schools have been using Information Communication Technology (ICT) for more than two decades but little is known about the process of implementing ICT interventions especially in view of the range of ICT currently available and the pedagogical stress it places on teachers. By using a private school in Singapore as a case, this research study attempts to unpack the categories of ICT use from PowerPoint presentations to interactive learning activities so as to illustrate the interactional nature of pedagogy and technology in ICT-enabled lessons. The study recommends the use of two new terms ‘Technogogy’ and ‘Teachnology’ to better describe the ICT implementation process. The iTEaCH (ICT-Technogogy-and-Collegiality Holistic) Implementation Model comprising the dimensions of Technogogy, Teachnology and Collegiality and how they interact in the ICT implementation process is also proposed in the study.
