Use of ICT as a catalyst for a Whole School Development Providing more educational options for students in remote areas Are there pedagogical and social costs? how do we avoid loosing the low performing students?

12 H Laugese n 12 ELFE 2 Regional seminar, Brussels Debate-forum at ELFE web-site

13 H Laugese n 13 ELFE 2 Regional seminar, Brussels Education-policy questions Do we have recommendations in the end?: Is there an ideal balance between virtual lessons and normal lessons? Teachers use of ICT: Balance between frontrunners and a minimum level Which kind of pre-service education and in-service training is necessary? Physical requirements at schools? Suggestions for relevant indicators regarding the use of ICT in education? etc.

14 H Laugese n 14 ELFE 2 Regional seminar, Brussels ELFE 1 observations 1 After the Steering Groups visits to 12 schools: Make ICT-use part of school policy and create a Whole School Development environment Evident effect of Pedagogical ICT driver licence Create conditions for teachers use of ICT and Have a vision, debate minimum performance, and leave room for frontrunners Distance education in remote areas or in small schools means more educ. options and can be combined with a social learning environment

15 H Laugese n 15 ELFE 2 Regional seminar, Brussels ELFE 1 observations 2 So far we have not seen any hard-core proofs that the use of ICT is increasing the quality of education There is a feeling among teachers that the use of ICT contributes to strengthen the students ability to work in an independent way A risk that the need to train oral skills is forgotten – written dimension increases workload A risk of less opportunity to have direct face to face discussions in the classrooms You do not need to loose the low performing students – but be aware not to do so

16 H Laugese n 16 ELFE 2 Regional seminar, Brussels ELFE 2 observations Preliminary observations will be presented by Ela Gajek and Ulf Fredriksson later today… But a personal comment: We must avoid that debate at school level on the use of ICT only focus on disciplinary questions and restrictions If the use is relevant and pedagogical meaningful it will motivate students and reduce need for disciplinary restrictions
