ABSTRACT
This exploratory paper focuses on applying information and communication technologies (ICT) in educational settings, particularly in higher education. Based on qualitative data studying four courses in detail, the article starts by discussing educators' expectations associated with technological advances. It proceeds to discuss the concept of learning based on Bruner's concept of agency, collaboration, reflection and culture concerning the transformations that ICT brings to the educational environment. It analyses the ICT-supported activities employed by teachers in four different types of courses: a) face-to-face (f2f) with a formal use of ICT; b) f2f with a creative use of ICT; c) online learning; and d) blended learning. The paper concludes with design considerations for a university course that reveals the potential of ICT to support intense, varied and continuous engagement in the learning process within the framework of Bruner's principles.
