Abstract

Innovation in digital technology has always been changing the way we work and education is not an exception. In this paper, we investigate the experiences of integrating digital media (combination of text, image, audio and video) into the school curricula in Ethiopia. We surveyed the accessibility of multimedia-rich digital learning resources; the experiences of students and teachers on using multimedia technologies; and their experiences on integrating multimedia in their learning process. Our finding indicated that the experiences of teachers and students on using digital technologies is fair. However, there is only limited access to multimedia rich digital learning resources, and premature practice of integrating them into the curriculum. The mapping of these results to the models of integrating digital learning into the curricula showed that the schools' status correspond to the initial phase and further recommendations on successful digital learning integration is provided. In addition, we proposed an agile and continuous model to continuously catch the evolving technological innovation and for large scale digital learning integration into a curricula.
