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.

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.

Instructional design is far more than glorified IT work. This report will help you see what designers do when they work in an academic institution.

[PDF] WISE: Connecting Education to the Real World 2015

[PDF] WISE: Connecting Education to the Real World 2015 | eTEL | Scoop.it
The 2015 WISE Education Survey: Connecting education to the real world focuses on how well education systems around the world are preparing students for work and what can be done to support this vital task. It represents the views of the WISE global community of education experts – teachers, students, recent graduates, policy makers, non-profit workers and members of the private sector – who connect with WISE on education reform issues. Numbering over 20,000 worldwide, WISE education experts are people with direct exposure to today’s education
environment who have made a demonstrated commitment to improving education in partnership with WISE.
Gallup conducted the survey online from August 6-31, 2015, and it was completed by 1,550 WISE education experts representing 149 countries in nine major global regions. While the data are not projectable to any larger population, the results provide valuable insights from this globally and professionally diverse group of experts into how the education systems in their countries are performing in a variety of ways. In some cases, the report includes results based on the views of experts in the nine global regions, as defined in the appendix. These regional-level findings reflect only the views of the WISE members from those regions who participated in the survey and are not necessarily reflective of other education stakeholders in those areas.
The survey’s key finding is that three in four WISE education experts are dissatisfied with education in their respective countries. The majority also believes their nation’s educational system has not improved in the past decade, and few give their system high marks (rating of “4” or “5” on five-point scale) on innovation. WISE experts believe the failure to provide students with opportunities to apply what they know while they are still
on their educational journey is a leading flaw in modern-day education.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, May 10, 10:32 AM
Abstract

The last decade has produced tremendous innovation in how people connect with one another online. Social networks have experienced a rapid increase in popularity, producing both concerns (privacy, content ownership) and opportunities. The articles in this journal can be viewed as attempts to answer the question: What should educators do about social networks? The advent of socially oriented tools, often grouped together under the Web 2.0 or social media banner, represents something of a dilemma for higher education. Social network sites (SNSs) can be a real benefit for learners as they encourage peer-to-peer dialogue, promote the sharing of resources, facilitate collaboration, and develop communication skills. These are all features of online learning that conventional learning management systems (LMSs) have struggled to realize over the past decade of intensive adoption in higher education. Yet SNSs seem to have accomplished this with remarkable ease and speed.

Open Educational <br/>Resources: <br/>Policy, Costs and <br/>Transformation | eTEL | Scoop.it

The Open Educational Resources (OER) movement has grown substantially since the term was first adopted at UNESCO’s 2002 Forum on the Impact of Open Courseware for Higher Education in Developing Countries (UNESCO, 2002). Since then, there has been a significant increase in the development, use and sharing of OER as more and more governments and institutions come to realise their value.

“"The assessment itself is completely artificial. It’s not ranking teachers in accordance with their ability to help develop children who will reach their potential, explore their creative interests.

I would like to know what kind of instructional practice was implemented in amphitheatres ... Great question but the result of that study should be carefully analysed
Justin Morgan's curator insight, May 16, 4:47 PM

Technology brings so much to the table, as it aids people in their every day lives with all the benefits it has to offer. Unfortunately, like just about everything else in the world, it has its downfalls. This article explains that Students who use digital devices in class 'perform worse in exams’. A study found Allowing students to use computers and the internet in classrooms substantially harms their results. “Our results indicate that students perform worse when personal computing technology is available. It is quite possible that these harmful effects could be magnified in settings outside of West Point,” the researchers concluded. I believe that the only reason they are performing worse on exams is because they are simply distracting themselves while using their computers. I for one, used to always sit on my computer playing games when I was in elementary school. Rather than doing the work, there was more entertaining things I could be doing because of all the Internet has to offer. I think this is the real reason computers are negatively impacting their grades.

“Among numerous transversal competencies, ‘collaboration’ is considered not only to be an essential interpersonal skill needed to perform effectively and efficiently in the 21st century, but also as a foundation for gaining other essential skills. Case in point, ‘tolerance’, ‘respect for diversity’, ‘intercultural understanding’, and ‘ability to resolve conflicts’ are some of the essential features of global citizenship skillsets, and the ability to work collaboratively can be fundamental in developing these skills”
