Additionally, my recent PhD research has increased my awareness of teachers’ lack of knowledge about using an interac-tive teaching approach and how to use ICT affordances to aid their teaching practice when teaching in an E-learning environment. To improve teachers’ teaching practice, I am aiming to use my computer experience, E-learning/ICT knowledge and understanding of teaching pedagogy to make a positive change in the learning system in Saudi schools. This can be achieved through developing training materials and/or a system to assess teachers in their teaching practice. One of the core concepts for developing these materials is the inter-active teaching approach and use of ICT tools within this teaching and learning context.
