No two children learn in the identical way. An enriched environment for one student is not necessarily enriched for another. In the classroom we should teach children to think for themselves. --Marian Diamond Differentiation is a philosophy that enables teachers to plan strategically in order to reach the needs of diverse learners in the classrooms. ICT in Education “Whereas once the learner was in a desert of ignorance looking for a wellspring of knowledge somewhere, now the student is overwhelmed in an ocean of information around them. This changes the role of research, the role of teaching, and indeed the very process of learning.” “The role of the teacher must change from a source of information, or even a channel or a path to the wellspring in the desert, to one of being a fellow passenger in the same boat on the ocean of information, helping the student sort out and make sense of the information all around them” Ordonez, 2002 49 The UNESCO World Education Report (1998) “New technologies challenge traditional concepts of both teaching and learning, and by reconfiguring how teachers and learners gain access to knowledge, have the potential to transform teaching and learning process” 50 21st Century Skills 51 Overview: Computers at Schools 5 2 Evolution of Computers at Schools Desktops (1980s) Laptops (early 2000s) Smart phones (mid 2000s) New devices with greater mobility and better display Netbooks Tablet PCs (2009~) (2010~) 5 3 Approaches to Computers at Schools Computer labs 30-40 computers per lab, several labs per school Computers in all classrooms Classrooms (5-10 computers per classroom) One computer per teacher 1:1 computing One computer per child 5 4 Governance/Financing of Computers at Schools Government initiatives • Malaysia: Smart Schools • Singapore: Future Schools • Australia: National Secondary School Computer Fund • Korea: e-Book Private Sectors • Intel, Microsoft, Cisco, etc NGOs • Computer Aid International (UK) • Open Society Institute (USA) Overseas Development Aid • Chinese government to Laos and Mongolia • Spanish government to Cambodia • USAID to ASEAN 5 5 Tablet PCs and 1:1 Computing 5 6 Tablet PCs in the Market Renowned brands (Apple iPad, HP slate, Dell streak, Samsung Galaxy, etc, Cost: USD200-600) Tablet PC from India (Sakshat Tablet, Tablet PC from China (iPed, in-Pad, Cost: USD35) lifesPad, etc, Cost: USD 40-200) Tablet PC from Philippines (eRizal Tablet PC from Thailand tablet, DOST robust tablets, Cost: USD 70) (by Forth Co.
