This paper analyses the use of various ICT devices for communication enhancement of professional students. Communication is a key skill for professional students and it greatly impacts their employability. With the changing times, traditional classroom teaching was found to be ineffective to achieve the desired results. The paper explores the reasons why a need was felt to incorporate technology with teaching and the reasons why teachers were still hesitant to use technological devices. The paper offers solutions to ensure a holistic integration of technology by teachers for communication enhancement.
