10 Reasons High Schools Students Say They Prefer Learning Online

10 Reasons  High Schools Students Say They Prefer Learning Online | Educations new approach | Scoop.it

Lisa Nielsen:


Ever wonder how students feel about learning online? At the recent iNacol Virtual Schools Symposium participants were treated to an experience that is surprisingly is rarely available at education conferences. We had the opportunity to hear directly from a panel of students who explained why they preferred learning online. Here are some of the reasons shared by these students and others I heard from explaining why students preferred this method of learning.

Case Studies on Integrating ICT into Teacher Education Curriculum in Asia

The dramatic adaptation of ICT has in turn called for education reforms at various levels with a view to creating an enabling educational environment for next generations to effectively function in the digital era. Therefore, teachers’ capacity of integrating ICT into their teaching practices plays a critical role in achieving the goals of the education reform. In this regard, teacher education institutions (TEIs) have made great efforts to develop a new ICT curriculum (or course) or incorporate ICT components into their existing curriculum.

Great ideas for how different systems embed ICT in their teacher training program

TALC library's curator insight, October 29, 2013 5:54 PM

As UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova emphasized, “Technology can be a powerful education multiplier, but we must know how to use it. It is not enough to install technology into classrooms – it must be integrated into learning. Nothing can substitute for a good teacher. It is not technology itself that empowers people – empowerment comes from skills and knowledge.”

 

It is within this context that the two phases of the

Next Generation of Teachers Project (Next Gen) funded by Japan Funds-in-Trust (JFIT), were implemented. The Project was designed to build the institutional capacity of teacher education institutions (TEIs) and Ministries of Education in 15 countries from the Asia-Pacific region in designing and providing training courses on

ICT-pedagogy integration, thereby preparing the next generation of teachers to enhance the process of teaching and learning by utilizing ICT judiciously in the classroom.

 

2 This was done

through 1) engaging Deans and TEI faculty members in planning and creating an ICT-based teacher training environment, 2) guiding TEIs in their curriculum review and development of ICT-related education courses, 3) implementing capacity building workshops for teacher educators on designing, providing and managing teacher training activities on ICT-pedagogy integration, and 4) tapping the TEI network to serve as Resource Centres to ensure that publications (books

and CDs) of UNESCO Bangkok reach the target audience.

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's curator insight, October 30, 2013 12:04 AM

Juárez Correa didn’t know it yet, but he had happened on an emerging educational philosophy, one that applies the logic of the digital age to the classroom. That logic is inexorable: Access to a world of infinite information has changed how we communicate, process information, and think. Decentralized systems have proven to be more productive and agile than rigid, top-down ones. Innovation, creativity, and independent thinking are increasingly crucial to the global economy.

This is a fantastic idea for students to combined PBL and technology. I think this is also a way for teachers to digitally document PBL.

Though this idea would could only be used for a small amount of classrooms right now, I love this idea and I want to keep it in my back pocket.
