In our modern age today, it seems that our teachers and students need to have a good understanding of ICT and how to make productive use of it. Because now, the incorporation of ICT in the classroom is getting essential and more significant. With its continuous improvement, the more it gets useful and in demand for both teachers and students to use as a medium of instruction.

In DepEd Balanga City Schools, many of our teachers are used in integrating technology inside the classroom. This way, they could infuse life in teaching and bring their lessons into new dimensions. With the great use of computer and multimedia presentations, it enhances the teaching-learning process and it can make the lessons more interactive and meaningful. And as for the students, the lessons will be more interesting, easier to understand, more diverse, more motivating and enjoyable.

In line with this, we should support and promote the use of Information Communication Technology (ICT) particularly in the classroom. Even studies and surveys say there is relatively great impact to the academic performance of school children who are exposed to this mode of teaching because they are able to receive a modern and comprehensive education. They are also able to learn skills that are related to technology which will add to their utilizable skills in the future. Education will be more suited to this generation and the direction that our society is targeting. And for the teachers, they will gain more knowledge and increase computer experience that could really be beneficial to their professional growth.
