ICT in Primary Education: Transforming children's learning across the curriculum

ICT in Primary Education: Transforming children's learning across the curriculum | eTEL | Scoop.it

Why and how are teachers integrating ICT (Information and Communication Technology) into primary education? In this course we analyse examples from schools in different parts of the world, and bring professional teachers, headteachers and policymakers together to share their best ideas and inspiring stories. The materials in the course are based on studies carried out for the UNESCO Institute of IT in Education, Moscow.

T@T lab's insight:

This Video has shown the experiences of teachers of primary school who use ICT in their teaching learning process. How a teacher can be a planner and organiser of successful integration of ICT in their classrooms.

RICARDO VIDAL's curator insight, June 27, 2015 1:59 PM

A good point to analize " The importance of all factors in this challenging conjugation of interest". How to make this possible when so many parts are relevant in the learning process. Eager to see how financial, managerial, logistical, organizational and technical elements work together to construct the new paradigm.

Computers have altered children's ability to imagine | eTEL | Scoop.it

WiFi, its existence, the control of it and access to it is of deep concern to children. Analysis shows that children see it as almost elemental, as immutable as the weather, literally part of the landscape. It’s represented as omnipresent, over-arching and essential to human connection and collaboration, with many of the artworks conveying a sense of wonder and amazement at the power and potential of WiFi.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, December 6, 4:26 AM

ABSTRACT

 

Due to the increasingly multicultural nature of e-learning environments, it is critical that instructors and instructional designers be aware of the importance of cultural factors in education and that they deliver culturally adaptive instruction. The main challenge of this paper is identifying the critical success factors for multicultural online learning from learners’ perceptions and their relationships with the six-dimensional Hofstede cultural model. Specifically, a categorization of the students’ perceptions is proposed by combining multiple correspondence and clustering analyses. To that end, two surveys were conducted in four e-learning universities in four different countries: Spain, the USA, China, and Mexico. Findings from clustering analysis show that learners are categorized according to their autonomy levels at the beginning of the educational process,and they are classified according to their satisfaction levels at the end of the instruction.

"The skills needed to solve an equation, plan a project, or develop an outline for a writing assignment show similarities. They include important problem solving competencies that students need throughout their lifetime. Computational thinking (CT) can magnify problem-solving skills needed to address authentic, real-world issues. The Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) and the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) worked together to develop materials to help educators understand, value, and implement computational thinking in K–12 education.

[PDF] Skills for a Digital World

[PDF] Skills for a Digital World | eTEL | Scoop.it
The pervasiveness of digital technologies in daily life is fundamentally changing the way individuals access and elaborate knowledge. Individuals have to process complex information, think systematically and take decisions weighting different forms of evidence. They also have to continuously update their skills to match rapid technical change at the workplace. More fundamentally, in order to seize the new opportunities that digital technologies are opening in many areas, individuals have to develop the right set of skills to make a meaningful use of these technologies.
 
Increasing use of digital technologies at work is raising the demand for new skills along three lines: ICT specialist skills to programme, develop applications and manage networks; ICT generic skills to use such technologies for professional purposes; and ICT complementary skills to perform new tasks associated to the use of ICTs at work, e.g.: information-processing, self-direction, problem-solving and communication. Foundation skills, digital literacies as well as social and emotional skills are crucial to enable effective use of digital technologies by all individuals in their daily lives.
 
To ensure that individuals can engage in digital activities and adapt rapidly to new and unexpected occupations and skills needs, a stronger emphasis has to be placed in promoting strong levels of foundation skills, digital literacies, higher order thinking competencies as well as social and emotional skills.
 
These changes in the demand for skills present two major challenges to skills development systems, including formal education, training and the recognition of skills acquired through non-formal learning. First, while there is awareness that the skills profile of citizens and workers will be very different than in the past, the skills of the future are difficult to identify with certaintydue fast technological changes. The second challenge is to ensure that, once changes in skills have been identified, skills development systems adjust sufficiently fast to match new skills demands.
 
While raising the demand for new skills, digital technologies are also creating new opportunities for skills development. Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) and Open Educational Resources (OER) modify learning methods and give access to quality resources to a larger population over more flexible
hours. The use of digital technologies in formal education and vocational training has the potential to improve learning, although the outcomes depend on the capacity to link these tools to effective pedagogy.
 
Big data analytics can also complement labour market information systems with a more timely and precise monitoring of changing skills demand to adapt skills development and activation policies. Lastly, the increase in the quantity of data that are collected on education and labour markets on a daily basis through online courses, administrative records and online job vacancies, and their exploitation through data analytics can open endless avenues for research and innovation in education and training and helps to better inform policy decisions.
 
In spite of their potential, these initiatives have, thus far, remained a niche. Barriers to their adoption include limits on learners and teachers/trainers’ capacity to take advantage of digital technologies; concerns about the quality of online education; and the lack of recognition for learning outcomes. Policies to overcome these barriers and to ensure consistency and quality, especially in an international marketplace, are key to grasping the learning opportunities created by these tools.

They aim to do this by combining an extreme form of "peer-to-peer learning" with project-based learning. Both are popular methods among education researchers, but they usually involve the supervision of a teacher. They complete a project using resources freely available on the internet and by seeking help from their fellow students, who work alongside them in a large open-plan room full of computers. Another student will then be randomly assigned to mark their work.
