The integration of IT into education is making great impacts in today’s teaching-learning process. It facilitates teachers in conducting their classes with ways traditional methods could not accomplish. As IT is increasingly accessible and user-friendly, it encourages a shift of teaching methods from the traditional (industrial) model to a more modern (inquiry) model. The shift entails a new orientation in classroom objectives, teaching-learning activities, and evaluation. As an example, a writing class may have an objective of improving the students’ writing skills by conducting a short documentary filmmaking project as part of its evaluative method. In order for the project to succeed, certain support systems must be established and such establishment may prove cumbersome without the presence of IT. This research explores to what extent IT can assist a collaborative learning classroom achieve the objectives and innovate methods of learning that literally brings the real world into the classroom.
