I am an educator currently based in Wellington NZ. My main focus in education is the implementation of ICT to enhance curriculum learning and helping education move into the modern world. I find it scary that there is such a focus around the world on moving education systems into the 21st century for the fact that this century (as I write this) is already 11 years old!!! It must be a grave concern that we are striving to get education globally up to date with 11 years ago...
Making the most of life and helping students to do the same. Preparing our future generations to have the skills that will help them to keep up with the world around them.
If used correctly ICT tools in education are not toys but powerful tools to help us make the most out of every education experience and collaborate on a global scale. Also that when talking ICT in education lets not focus on the tools themselves but how we use them and the skills we use to advance ourselves and our world through them. That way as technology develops (as it is exponentially) we don't continuously fall behind but rather we have the skills to be adapting with the world around us, which is a much more fluid world than ever before.
An array of things.
Watch this space.
