Abstract: ICT has been viewed as a tool to support curriculum re-design and teachers’ pedagogical beliefs shift from teacher-centred to student-centred. While schools are being equipped with varied array of ICT tools, ICT has not successfully brought the shift in pedagogies to student-centred models in many countries. As the use of ICT in education gains traction within formal education, teaching and learning are framed as two overlapping and interconnecting sets of processes— transfer and deepening. The two sets of processes are not operating independently, for they are mutually reinforcing and iteratively enhancing learning. To conclude, the paradigms of ‘craft’ and ‘industrial’ educator are introduced as a suggested means of lensing the role of teachers in ICT-mediated learning environments.
