  • This presentation will cover the knowledge society agenda, pervasiveness of technology, education for all; present future national strategic objectives and the broad aims of various national and international initiatives regarding professional development.
  • We first have to explore what a knowledgeable society is and more importantly what information is. An information society is a society where knowledge and information is seen as a valuable aspect or commodity in a society. Information is sold and exchanged in various formats and methods and is mostly done so via electronic channels. Information or knowledge is a powerful tool in modern societies. Knowledge in societies helps promote democracy, justice, peace and solidarity. Information and therefore knowledge is mostly seen as a means of changing the behaviours and characteristics of a society. The trend in modern societies is that they require more information that is open source (free and available to all).
  • As educators, we want not only an Information Society, but a Knowledge Society, enabling all children and all people to access Knowledge and to benefit from being educated.

  • For a knowledgeable society to exist the following notions have to be implemented“Learning to know”“Learning to do”“Learning to live together”“Learning to be”These notions are generally new knowledge that needs to be acquired by a society. This will undoubtedly call for a different education system and or techniques. The world is moving toward an “e-learning” system that incorporates learning over the internet. These learning concepts are very interactive and can be used for training and learning and form a new conception of teaching.
  • The notion of a knowledgeable society in terms of the educators is that they want all children and all people to access knowledge that will greatly benefit their livelihood. It is therefore that educators have such a major role in education. The responsibility of developing all underdeveloped countries to take part in the developments of the ICT is placed on the educators around the world. The way in which this can be attained is through the following
  • The way in which this can be attained is through the following:Digital solidarity: This aims at providing every child around the world with access to digital information and communication infrastructures. Learners and lifelong learning: Education in its initial stages should provide a means that will promote lifelong learning Decision making strategies: Decision makers should make use of more research and the experience of practitioners to enable them to make decisions that will meet the requirements of real needs. Networking: The effectiveness of a knowledgeable society will be limited to the way it is networked with other knowledgeable societies. This promotes the sharing of knowledge between societies and promotes collective intelligence.  Research: The process of developing ICT based education training processes is an on-going research process. It is required that the educational techniques and applications be continuously researched and improved upon.  Teachers: A knowledgeable society will require new specific competencies for educators and or teachers. They are the key to the door of creating a knowledgeable society. They too have to become networked in this society to be able to access new types of knowledge.

The key role in a knowledgeable society as mentioned earlier is the access to information and knowledge via electronic channels. Government and societies around the world has embarked on a mission to distribute technology to all to allow them to have access to information. This for example includes computers students or children can use to access the internet and networks of the knowledgeable societies. This also includes providing these institutions with appropriate communication infrastructure.

This for example includes computers students or children can use to access the internet and networks of the knowledgeable societies. Internet access is becoming more common, but the use of the Internet for teaching and learning purposes is very limited. (Government Gazette, 2004)
  • To be able to make the e-learning plausible, a great deal of training and professional training is required by teachers and educators. This will allow them to make effective use of the new technology at their disposal. This will also enable them to teach and educate better and therefore provide a better learning experience to the children.
  • “Education is the most powerful weapon to change the world.” Nelson Mandela. www.educationforall2015.orgEducation as a whole has a vast impact on economic growth and development. Education is also the most important factor in creating a knowledgeable society and improving the livelihood of every individual in the country. Education can also not only be available to a select few and has to be accessible to all.
  • The goals set out for providing education for all is set out as follows:To promote economic growth and socioeconomic development and improve the livelihood of the people in the country. This includes growth in terms of education and industryTo empower woman and improve or increase the throughput of highly skilled professional woman especially in industryStrengthen democracy by making educated decisions and fighting corruption. By strengthening democracy a reduction in crime will also result.Fight HIV and AIDS by educating people about the dangers and preventative measures that can be taken. End poverty by creating a country with a unique skill set. This will sprout from the growth of the economy and thus job creation will increase. This also means that there are more skilled labour accessible to industry and an injection of skilled labour can increase the growth of current industriesIncrease the standard and throughput of individuals that attains higher education certificates and improve the countries research and development capacities. This will attract more investment from international investors and thus greater opportunities for job creation are possible.

  • To be able to build and develop an educational system that will benefit the learners or children there are certain objectives that the department of education has set out. These objectives show clearly what needs to be done to be able to transform the country into a knowledgeable society. These objectives are as follows:A foundation for a long and healthy education system has to be made. This will include education from the lowest to the highest level. This is done to improve the achievements in higher education and the throughput of knowledgeable individuals form higher education institutions. Quality knowledgeable professionals, teachers, academics, research and public service core are required. These knowledgeable individuals are required to build a new generation of knowledgeable individuals. This will also greatly impact on the socioeconomic development of the country.To develop world class learning institutions from schools to universities and centres for higher education over the next 20 years.

  • Increase the production rate or throughput rate of highly skilled professionals. A new national framework of common objectives will be created and a new understanding between all relevant departments regarding education development and industry. Establish a national and educational science system that will promote the development of society. This will lead to more individuals attaining higher education and the increase is set to at least 30%. The increase of higher educational individual (especially Africans and woman) will have an improvement in innovation and research capacity. This national strategic plan is set to be carried out in 5 years and all these objectives have to be met.

  • The Guidelines for Teacher Training and Professional Development in ICT is one of the initiatives undertaken by the Department of Education to implement the White Paper on e-Education. (Hindle, D. 2007)To be able to achieve the goals as set out by the national strategic objectives, the enforcers of education has to be trained and developed to be able to produce the required outcomes. The targets for the ICT development program are as follows
  • All students leaving higher education institutions for the teaching profession should have at least reached the adoption level. This in short means that they should be able to use a computer and know how to use software. This will enable them to use various ICT. Individuals in the teaching profession should all be trained to adoption level to ensure that they can use the ICT systems.60% of all teachers that have access to ICT should be trained and developed to the adaption level and a further 20% should reach the appropriation level.

The innovation level will look at ways and development of the ICT systems to change the way or the role the teacher has in the classroom. It is at this level that new teaching methods and materials can be developed. At least 10% of practicing teachers should reach the innovation level through post graduate studies.

  • Furthermore the following objectives will ensure that the ICT skills development becomes a successICT training should become compulsory at higher education institutions enabling them to be able to use computers and software that will enable them to be able to use ICT. Students that are currently at higher education institutions should be fast tracked to adoption level before the end of their study period.
  • Students have to have met the adaption level requirement after they leave the higher education institution before becoming a practicing teacherAll teachers that have access to ICT should be trained to adaption level by 2010Subject advisors’ roles will require them to be trained to appropriation level through a focused intervention and training program with the help of the department of education.
