8 Potential Of ICTs Access Efficiency Learning Teaching Skill Formation Lifelong Learning Planning & Management Community Linkages

9 Potential: 1. Expanding Educational Opportunities Radio Broadcast Interactive Radio Instruction Television Virtual Schools Virtual Universities

10 Potential: 2. Increasing Efficiency Issues Dual Shift Systems Multigrade Schools Small Urban or Rural Schools Flexibility in Learning Schedule Solutions Broadcast Radio Interactive Radio Educational TV Virtual Online Courses

11 Potential: 3. Enhancing Quality of Learning Potential Motivate and engage learners Bring life to concepts and processes Foster inquiry Provide flexibility Allow application of information Provide access to world of information Bring the world into the classroom Offer collaborative opportunities and communication Offer tutored and individualized learning Solutions Radio and TV Multimedia Learning Modules Virtual Labs Connecting to the Worlds Designing and Creating Things

12 Potential: 4. Enhancing Quality of Teaching Issues Difficult Profession No One-Shot Training Continuum Initial Training Lifelong Upgrading Connecting Solutions Multimedia Training and Support System Training Videos Teacher Development Portal Internet Resources for Teachers

13 Potential: 5. Facilitating Skill Formation New Workplace Realities E-Training Just-in-Time Convenient Place Up-to-Pate User-centric Solutions Simulations Competency-based multi-media Video and Interactive media Workplace Training

14 Potential: 6. Sustaining Lifelong Learning Issues Workers need to learn new skills Modern societies demand constant updating The educated can become obsolete Life-cycle pattern is changing Solutions Radio and TV Multimedia Packages Online Courses Open Universities Third Age Universities

15 Potential: 7. Improving Policy Planning & Management Management of Institutions and Systems –School: Admissions, student flow, personnel, staff development, facilities… –System: School mapping, personnel payroll, MIS, communication, information,... Management of Policy Making –Storage and analysis of data –Construction and assessment of policy scenarios –Tracer studies and tracking systems

16 Potential: 8. Advancing Community Linkages Growth in ICT Access Millions

25 Conclusion To Tech or not to Tech Education ICT Education More Effective and Responsive ICTs X

26 We do not think anymore of the spectacle of printing every time we read a book, the phenomenon of TV every time we watch a movie, or the miracle of the telephone every time we make a call. The ultimate success of ICTs for learning will be attained when we stop marveling about the ICTs and apply our minds and emotions to the wonders of learning.
