Previous research has shown the effectiveness of ICT (Information Communication Technology) integration in learning to improve critical thinking skills of students.


Hence, technology could not function solely in ICT-integrated learning, it should be associated with the way teachers employ ICT-integrated materials in classroom, known as digital pedagogy.


However, the role of digital pedagogy is sometimes neglected in ICT-integrated learning; which potentially results in inadequate learning processes.


Raissa Mataniari, a master degree student in School of Education, The University of Adelaide, conducted a systematic review examining the way digital pedagogy has been included in ICT-integrate learning to improve critical thinking skills of students.


In her review, the inclusion of digital pedagogy elements: attitude and aptitude; in 145 journal relevant articles were examined.


The results showed that 28 articles included the act of embedding digital technology meaningfully into an educational context (attitude) in 91% of journal articles and the meshing of pedagogical expertise with digital technology (aptitude) in 87% of journal articles. With regard to validity and reliability, construct validity was used.


Despite some limitations, this study gives benefits to researchers and educators as a point of reference for future interest in designing ICT-integrated learning. Further, this study also gives recommendation of future research to seek the affiliation between digital pedagogy and TPACK.
