Abstract

This article examined the scope and relevance of integrating technology in Sierra Leone's higher education systems. It discussed the general scope of technology provision in HEIs across the country, and the effectiveness of the National ICT Policy in enabling effective delivery of targets like the Vision 2025 Plan to be achieved. The article also considers the implications of technology integration, more so for national delivery of effective pedagogic engagement and constraints faced by institutions in being effective at making the relevant impact to their stakeholders. The article concludes that integration of technology is an essential element for the effective delivery of flexible technology-mediated curriculum to students across the country, with the capacity for tutors / lecturers to identify differentiated teaching resources to cater for the variety of students' learning needs.
