  • Johannes Gutenberg – 1440first mass production of books3600 pages per day compared to 40 by hand printing / few by hand-copyingintroduced era of mass communication –increase access to knowledge – broke the monopoly of the literate elite1620 Francis bacon would say “changed the whole face and state of things throughout the worldno dyslexia before the printing press
  • Thomas Friedman&quot;flatteners&quot; that he sees as leveling the global playing field – personal computingconvergence of computers / internet / globalisationdigital nativesSpeakup 2010Not reflected in what is happening in schools – precieved lack of sophisticated use of emerging technologiesDesktop computers still most prevalent
  • In education, three key technology-related shifts are underway that shows this to be an idea whose time has finally come.The first involves shifting computers from school tech labs to classrooms and from classrooms to pupils’ backpacks. The second replaces books and print-based analogues with online curricula and digital content. The third removes one-size-fits all, teacher-at-front-of-the room instructional approaches in favour of personalised lessons, assessments, and instructional modalities.&quot;Global education strategist Dr Mark Westo
  • Enabling students to reach their potential through increased access to educational resources and experts that extend learning beyond the capacities or limitations of their school or community.Engaging students in rich, compelling learning experiences that develop deeper knowledge and skill development especially the problem-solving, creativity and critical thinking skills so highly desired for our world today.Empowering students to take responsibility for their own educational destinies and to explore knowledge with an unfettered curiosity, thus creating a new generation of life long learners.
  • emerging and developing technologies delivering compensatory strategies
  • Helping students learn (why am I doing this?) and to gauge student progress (How do I know it is working?)
  • Enhancement to Transformation
