  • Welcome, thank you, introduction.What I want to achieve in this presentation is:Share with you some of our thinking around education, it’s importance and the role of ICT in education.I also want to share some of the current work we are doing with governments, education systems and institutions globally.And in doing so, maybe controversially, explore this question of “Are we really ready for the power of ICT in education?”
  • As a company we believe strongly in the power of ICT in Education to support lifelong learning. However, we are also clear that improving student performance, lifting student engagement and developing a deeper competency set in learners is not JUST about adding an element of ICT. And as a company we are becoming more serious around how we can work in partnership with the education community to not only develop better and more relevant products, but also to become more engaged in the necessary research, change management and human capacity building, to name some of the vital elements, that are critical for success.
  • To reinforce with you what I am talking about, nothing says it more than this recent research report from OECD’s CERI on the New Millennium Learners. The above graph shows how access to ICT can significantly improve student performance. However, what is being measured here is the access to and frequency of use of ICT by students OUT OF SCHOOL.
  • When we compare this with the impact of ICT on performance based on the frequency of use of ICTs in school, unfortunately in most countries there is no significant difference. This is not saying that individual teachers aren’t seeing a difference, or that schools are failing, more that the way students are using ICTs for their own learning are different inside and outside school and the approaches outside school are more effective. So schools need to learn from this and support approaches to teaching and learning that more align with the styles that work best for students.
  • So there is much to be said for understanding what motivates and engages students, what they think about ICTs and how they can help with learning. This focus on the personalizing of learning will offer improved results and drive better outcomes for students. So at Microsoft we’re really interested in what drives student tapping the power of ICTs for their own learning.
  • Microsoft Vision for education is built on this notion of Expanding the Power of Personalized Learning for all students and learners, through ICT. We think this power has not been fully realized and so our focus is around how we work with the education community to ensure all are ready to tap into the power of ICT to deliver more personalized learning.
  • To realize the vision Microsoft is focusing on 5 pillars where we see ICT can make a significant difference.<Use standard messaging here>
  • Include on this slide examples you want to cover in the following slides.
  • And so the power of ICT to deliver a more personalized learning experience in future will comes from looking at the ability of a software and services approach. This maps to students thinking around a blended digital lifestyle/workstyle and provides access to information and resources across a range of devices, where ever and when ever the learning needs to occur. <Add your own story.>
