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

TELLS library's curator insight, October 29, 2013 8:54 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 3:04 AM
