Web-based training or Internet-basedtraining.
 
In theUnited Kingdomeducation system, information technology was formally integrated into
 
the institution curriculum when the National Curriculumwas devised. It was quickly realizedthat the work covered was useful in all subjects particularly in Science Education. With thearrival of the Internet and the broadband connections to all institution, the application of ITknowledge, skills and understanding in all subjects became a reality. This change in emphasishas resulted in a change of name from Information Technology (I.T) to Information andCommunication Technology (ICT).ICT in Educationcan be understood as the application of digital equipment to all aspects of teaching and learning.The information Communication Technology is actually

because information is good, moreinformation is better, and that anything done using the internet is necessarily better than it wouldhave been otherwise.We need to prepare technology-proficient educators to meet the needs of the day. Learning is acritical educational challenge facing the nation. More than two thirds of the nation's teachers will be replaced by new teachers over the next decade. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure that the nextgeneration of future teachers emerging from the nation's teacher education programs is preparedto meet this challenge.
