Responsible use of ict brief project report - feb 2011

  1. 1. Pilot Run in the Philippines of theAPEC Training Program for Preventive Education on ICT MisuseBrief Project Report15 February 2010
  2. 2. APEC ICT Net Project• 2006-2007 by KTCF and AEF• a culture of healthy ICT use and adverse effects of ICT use• Activities: – research, content development – educational campaign through a poster competition – content localization and distribution through pilot use of the content in local training workshops (Peru and the Philippines)
  3. 3. APEC Training Program for Preventive Education on ICT Misuse• KTCF and APWINC• enhancements on the previous training design and materials + training rollout• International Symposium on ‘Safe and Trusted ICT/ Internet Use, Actions Against Internet Misuse’ in September 2009• Training workshops – Philippines & Indonesia
  4. 4. Responsible Use of ICT• Pilot Philippine run• Commission on Information and Communications Technology and Svillupo Consulting Services Cooperative• Enhancement of CICT’s existing Computer and Internet Literacy Course (CILC) by incorporating KTCF materials
  5. 5. Responsible Use of ICTRegular CILC run Special CILC run•5 days •3 days•Topics covered: •Topics covered: • ICT Basics (includes Proper • ICT Basics Use of Computers) • Internet • Internet • Responsible Use of ICT • Word Processing (combination of proper use • Spreadsheet of computers, Cyber • Multimedia Presentation Security and Ethics) • Cyber Security and Ethics •Materials:•Materials: • Combination of regular • Locally developed CILC run materials + • Web-based videos/photos selected appropriate KTCF • Games, activities videos & activities

  8. 8. Highlights: Training of TrainersTopics covered1. Basic Project Planning2. Profile of a Novice ICT User3. Characteristics of a Responsible ICT User4. Review of KTCF Materials (for possible incorporation into own training designs)5. Creating the Responsible Use Agreement6. Creating the Competency-Strategy-Material Framework7. Creating the Training Design
  9. 9. Feedback from the Participants (Trainers) on the ToT• Appreciated lectures/inputs from the 3 Korean professors – Internet, Game and Pornography Addiction – Legal System to protect IPR – Netiquette – Comparison of Korean experience with local status/context• 2 ½ days for the ToT is too short• Teams were adequately prepared in planning for their EUTs• Customization of their training designs was imperative due to dissimilar target clients
  10. 10. Highlights: End-User TrainingiSchools • Participants: 28 years to 45 years old (teachers) • Used most (if not all) of the KTCF videos provided – use of animation as a means to convey lessons much more than presentations per se • Use of personal stories and situations; role-playingeSkwela • Participants: 14 years to 52 years old (out-of-school youth / adults) • Medium of instruction: Filipino • Use of analogies, local cases, and physical activities instead of immersing the learners immediately into the technology • Incorporated the module on Preventing VDT Syndrome into their icebreakers and warm-up exercises to instill the habit or proper posture and exercises in the learners • Workshop on setting rules for responsible ICT use • used most if not all KTCF videosDigital • Participants: 18 years to 67 years old (community leaders/volunteers); majority were zero-knowledge/skill ICT users with technophobia (i.e. wary of poweringBridges the computer on/off and clicking the mouse) • Group work on different cyber crimes (how to solve and come up with a set of computer ethics or netiquette) – Strategy: Video – Process – Lecture use of videos, small group discussion, plenary presentation
  11. 11. KTCF Resources/Activities Used Topics covered iSchools eSkwela Digital BridgesICT Basics • ICT concepts • Video: VDT Syndrome • Use of Computer • Icebreaker: VDT exercises components • Labeling the parts of the • Accessing Software computer (input & output • File Management devices) • Some KTCF slidesInternet • Communication tools: • Video & Slides: Two • Thread Connection • Video: email, instant Faces of the Internet, • Passing the Message Protecting messaging • Video & Activity: Two Personal • Browser use/ Search Faces of the Internet, Information, Engine Protecting Personal • eCommerce, Information entertainment, social • KTCF slides: Internet networking Suppliers and ConsumersResponsible • Proper Use • Slides: games, internet • KTCF slides • Videos: • Benefits and issues addiction, Cyber bullying, • Videos: • CopyrightUse of ICT concerning ICT use netiquette • Netiquette Protection • Cybercrimes • Videos: • Verbal Violence • Phishing Scam • Copyright Protection • Internet Addiction • Pornography • VDT Syndrome • Pornography Addiction Addiction • Provision of False • Game Addiction Information • Mobile Phone Addiction • Mobile Phone Manners • Copyright Protection • Cyber Security • Self-control in Watching • Malware Indecent Contents • Account Compromise • Confusion Between Cyberspace and Reality • Phishing • Production and Distribution of Viruses
  12. 12. Feedback from the Trainers on the EUT• All of the sessions were found to be useful to the participants• Session or Module 1 is the most challenging because it all starts from there• There should always be an activity related to the topics before starting the lectures to better understand the lessons.• Training materials: Should not be too technical, participants might not understand fully what is in the training materials• Device a way on how to measures the knowledge being imparted by the trainers, probably an exam 4 to 5 questions on the previous lectures before proceeding to the next lectures.
  13. 13. Feedback from the Participants on the EUT• “APEC” label: very much appreciated• KTCF videos would be better understood if they were dubbed in Filipino and had Filipino subtitles• 3-day exposure/training is too short; need for follow-up sessions• Fear: to lose what they learned because they do not have constant and frequent access to ICTs to practice what they learned• Thankful for the opportunity and the allowances
  14. 14. Highlights: Debriefing• After Action Review – project’s goals – what happened – factors that accounted for differences in planning vs. execution – improvements for the next run.• Documenting the EUT. – answers to the four AAR questions – modified Training Design – Trainer’s Guidebook – Training Report
  15. 15. General Observations• Responsible Use of ICT is necessary• KTCF materials are useful – Better if dubbed in Filipino – Flexible use: welcomed• Customization is necessary (training designs and materials)• Team teaching works!• Fast Internet connection during training runs is crucial• Wiki habit not ingrained
  16. 16. Challenges• Technical problems – Slow and/or intermittent internet connection – No printer was available for printer-related exercises – Available computers could not play KTCF videos• Coordination gaps with the participants in terms of schedule• Participants had difficulty understanding some of the resource materials because these were in English.• None of the project teams reported successfully carrying out the activity on creating laboratory policies or responsible use agreements.• Training participants took longer than expected to grasp basic concepts – training teams had to adjust accordingly
  17. 17. Recommendations: Training Design• Training objectives must consider the following: – ICT know-how of trainees – Available time/duration – Available resources, particularly infrastructure• Rollout and further tweaking – Longer training period for participants with zero-ICT knowledge/skills• a two-(or even three-) part workshop is desirable to attain learning for a “zero-knowledge” ICT trainee to a responsible ICT user
  18. 18. Recommendations: Training Pre-requisites• Training on responsible use of ICT might be better discussed among Level 2 users in a follow-up workshop (after a few weeks) – rather than to Level 1 zero-knowledge/skills who are just starting to appreciating ICT use
  19. 19. Recommendations: Training Strategies• use Filipino context and actual situations• Using a form of – pre-assessment prior to training to establish the true level of ICT knowledge of the trainees – post-assessment after training (immediately as well as after 3 months) to gauge if learning has taken place through actual application• Establish a monitoring mechanism to measure impact of the training on the daily use of ICT among participants
  20. 20. Recommendations: Resources• Content customization – use of local language/s and sample cases• Incorporate use of other ICT (e.g. cellphones, TV, digicam/videocam, etc.) in materials• providing some Filipino-translated and dubbed versions of the KTCF videos can increase understanding and retention among the trainees• Stand-alone modules on “Responsible Use of ICTs” can be provided to Filipinos who are not “zero-knowledge” in terms of ICT, but can stand to benefit from such instruction (i.e. students in all levels, etc.)
  21. 21. Other Recommendations• Need for a stronger advocacy campaign on the “Responsible Use of ICT”• Trainees should be given ample time to absorb lessons: providing some days off training in between modules to learn more things on their own and deepen their knowledge at their own time, in their own contexts, with assigned activities and outputs• Try another run with KTCF training design as starting point (instead of the current CILC training design) to check its applicability in the Philippine setting
  22. 22. Recent Updates• iSchools – another run in Bataan (parents) + request from DepEd-Bataan for roll-out• eSkwela – training design to be recommended to eSkwela centers• Digital Bridges - new implementations – 1 run with Government Executives (focus was more on copyright and security issues) – 1 run with Elderly
