Use E-Learning to Teach Improved It Skills

Use E-Learning to Teach Improved It Skills | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Addressing the pervasive skills shortage is not an easy task but a local company believes part of the solution lies in improved IT training.

"There is a direct need for 21st century job skills in developing countries like Namibia. Unfortunately, the solutions that currently exist are difficult to implement, require resources that are currently unavailable in urban areas and are prohibitively expensive. Quality education is an experience for all but beyond the reach of the vast majority of workers. It is vital for governments to overcome the barriers to large scale IT and Professional Development training efforts. Since it is not possible to send out thousands of expert instructors in these fields to every single developing nation, e-learning is a very practical alternative for the cost-efficient delivery of high quality workforce skills" said Moira Cloete of eSkill Learning.

Science practical work instructional technologies and open distance learning in science teacher training

Science practical work instructional technologies and open distance learning in science teacher training | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The practical work component offers unique challenges for university science courses. This is even more pertinent in an Open and Distance Learning (ODL) environment like the Bindura University of Science Education’s Virtual and Open Distance Learning (VODL) programme in Zimbabwe. Effective ODL education should be flexible enough to accommodate science disciplines with practical components. The main challenges with practical work in ODL are that students are geographically scattered and that they come from very different educational backgrounds.  This article tackles the issues.

The Sad Reality Of Education Technology

The Sad Reality Of Education Technology | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The sad reality is that most schools still believe that they are “teaching with technology” because they have a computer lab where they teach students important skills like word processing and how to create Power Point presentations. This may have been a worthwhile skill to teach 15 years ago, but the fact that we haven’t adapted as technology has is a clear example of how slow schools are to respond to the changing needs of our students.
