Integration, Practice, Technology, Training, University.


This article explores the positive impact of integrating Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in teaching, leading to improved teacher performance and increased student engagement. The study focuses on suggestions provided by instructors to enhance the use of technology in education. Data is collected through a questionnaire administered to Moroccan university English language teachers from Moulay Ismail University Faculty of Arts and Humanities - Meknes, and Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah Dhar - El Mahraz - Fes, serving as a case study. The Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 19 is employed for data analysis. The findings emphasize the importance of quality training, accessible ICT resources, and effective school policies as key factors in successfully integrating technology into education.
