Abstract: Portable technologies offer new opportunities for learning, in which, learning collaboratively has become an extremely important skill. Technology causes learners to be more engaged and often retain more information. Funding for technology has brought teacher and learner digital devices to a large number of classrooms in basic education. Given the vast resources invested in digital devices by the governments, measuring the level of ICT integration for collaborative learning in basic education is of crucial importance. The study established that 57.3% of variation in Collaborative learning in Basic Education was accounted for by Indicators of ICT Integration, The ICT integration framework for collaborative learning (IIFCL) so developed showed the critical indicators to measure the level of ICT integration for collaborative learning in basic education.
Keywords: Collaborative learning, ICT Integration, Portable technologies, Digital devices.
