Even though the pedagogical integration of ICT (information and communication technologies) has a long history, we are still far from understanding the relationships between pedagogy and ICT (Watson, 2006). On one hand, educators are being encouraged to integrate technology in their classes, and on another hand they often feel like the technology offered is yet another element of content to add to their already filled course agendas. Research up to present seems to have limited itself to either investigate empirical evidence related to the process related to the pedagogical integration of ICT or to document results of pedagogical practices that integrate ICT in education (Charlier, Daele, & Deschryver, 2002; Daudelin, Lefebvre, Mercier, Brodeur, Dusseault , & Richer, 2005; Desjardins, 2004, 2005; Guir, 2002; Larose, Lenoir, Karsenti, & Grenon, 2002; Lebrun, 2002). In this viewpoint, several have put forth an hypothesis according to which ICT are better integrated when using a constructivist perspective. The majority of these studies also conclude that integrating technology in classrooms leads to constructivist practices. Unfortunately, these hypothesis and conclusions do not contribute to identify the relationships between ICT and pedagogy, nor do they contribute to explain these relationships, which restrains our present comprehension of the phenomenom.
