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 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

On recommendation from Mrs. Akin, we have tried this app and love it! You can create custom quizzes and download class data, much like you can with a CPS system. Check it out and see how you like it! There are quizzes already created by other teachers that you can try or you can create your own.

Blended Learning Implementation Guide

Blended learning means rethinking how class is structured, how time is used, and how limited resources are allocated. Compared to high-access environments, which simply provide devices for every student, blended learning includes an intentional shift to online instructional delivery for a portion of the day in order to boost learning and productivity. Productivity in this sense includes improvements to teacher access of data and its potential to inform instruction. Greater student productivity includes less time wasted on skills already mastered. Increased learning opportunities and improved student outcomes enhance overall system productivity.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 25, 2013 12:24 PM

We should have thought about restructing classrooms and the relationship we have with learning as teachers and learners.

robyns tut's curator insight, September 27, 2013 6:01 PM

The integration of technology and teaching is completely a good idea in my opinion. Especially given that we are living in a digital age, where learners have access to a lot of technical devices, which aim at improving and making life efficient. Thus by building curricula that welcomes the use of technology inside the classroom, will change the face of education - hopefully for the better. However my concern is the introduction of a 'customised' form of learning. Education is supposed to be unified experience where learners access information at the same time and at the same pace. It seems unfair that because there wil be fast learners in a class, that means they have to get to the end of the syllabus quicker than others. Everyone should receive attention in a similar manner, whether they understand the work or not. Teaching should not favour one person over the other.
