  4. 4. Which skills are required to become a good learner today? <ul><li>Today learners are expected to have a lot of skills. </li></ul><ul><li>Using ICT can help you to develop all these skills. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Information and communication technology <ul><li>ICT is often used as one word although it consists of information plus communication plus technology. </li></ul><ul><li>ICT = I+C+T </li></ul>
  6. 6. Does the story of Mr. Phong, an English teacher, sounds familiar to you? <ul><li>“ I have always been very curious to learn new things. Two year ago I enrolled for an ICT course and got some basic word processing skills. I have produced new hand outs for my students and thrown my old yellow notes in the dustbin. Last year I joined a class to learn more about Flash animations. I can already picture the word games I use in the classroom on my computer screen. Although it is quite inspiring, it is very difficult and time consuming. Today I am asking myself what the added value will be. Will I be a better teacher when I use a Flash animation instead of my paper cards?” </li></ul>
  7. 7. The ‘T’ in ICT <ul><li>Whereas ICT training programs often focus on the ‘T’ in ICT, the capacity building program offered by the IMIH project learns teachers to really integrate ICT in the classroom. </li></ul>
  8. 8. The use of ICT as part of the learning process should be subdivided in three different forms: as an object, aspect or medium.
  9. 9. ICT as an object <ul><li>The use of ICT in education as an object refers to learning about information technology and is mostly organised in a specific course such as ‘computer education’. Learners familiarise themselves with hardware and software packages, such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and others. The aim is computer literacy. </li></ul>
  10. 10. ICT as an aspect <ul><li>ICT as an aspect refers to specific applications of ICT in education as used in industry and professional practice. The use of ICT vocational training, such as computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing, is an example of ICT as an aspect of education. </li></ul>
  11. 11. ICT as a medium <ul><li>ICT as a medium for teaching and learning is whenever ICT is used to support the teaching and learning process and not specifically its content. </li></ul>
  12. 12. IMIH @ HRCTEM <ul><li>Capacity building program offered by IMIH promotes the use of ICT as a medium for teaching and learning. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Do you need more reasons why we should bring computers into the classroom?
  14. 14. The use of ICT <ul><li>Increases teacher’s and learner’s motivation </li></ul><ul><li>Supports instruction and active teaching approaches </li></ul><ul><li>Can increase student and teacher productivity </li></ul><ul><li>ICT skills are required to function in the new work places </li></ul>
  15. 15. INFORMATION and Communication Technologies <ul><li>What does it mean living in the information society? </li></ul><ul><li>What does it mean teaching/learning in the information society? </li></ul>
  16. 16. INFORMATION and Communication Technologies <ul><li>Did you know that the new knowledge economy is merely in its emerging stages? The knowledge economy will only reach maturity from 2010 onwards. </li></ul><ul><li>A doubling of the world’s knowledge: </li></ul><ul><li>1930  every 30 years </li></ul><ul><li>1980  every 7 years </li></ul><ul><li>2010  every 11 hours </li></ul>
  17. 17. INFORMATION and Communication Technologies <ul><li>A radical new situation has been created since the Internet was introduced to educators. The knowledge of information itself has become very powerful. </li></ul>
  18. 18. INFORMATION and Communication Technologies <ul><li>In the information society, everything that you require for reading, looking up, studying, training, revising, constructing, arranging, informing, saving and reminding, browsing and navigating is available at the click of a mouse. </li></ul>
  19. 19. INFORMATION and Communication Technologies <ul><li>We all have to become exemplary drivers on the information highway </li></ul>
  20. 20. Information and COMMUNICATION technologies <ul><li>When we use ICT in education, we generally mean that we use it as a tool for research and as a means for communication . </li></ul>
  21. 21. Information and COMMUNICATION technologies <ul><li>How can you find all the information on the World Wide Web? </li></ul>
  22. 22. Information and COMMUNICATION technologies <ul><li>Googling </li></ul><ul><li>The most popular search engine is available in English and in Vietnamese </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>Google has also started to put books online </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>To access these books you need to have a gmail account </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>Of course, you can also start your own reflective blog </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
  23. 23. Information and COMMUNICATION technologies <ul><li>Other search engines </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>Online encyclopaedia </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>The wikipedia is also available in Vietnamese </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>Online library </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
  24. 24. Information and communication TECHNOLOGIES <ul><li>Of course, the ‘T’ in ICT stands for ‘Technology’. </li></ul><ul><li>Although learning about technology is important we feel that the ‘T’ is also for ‘Thinking’. </li></ul>
  25. 25. Information and communication TECHNOLOGIES <ul><li>More complex educational methods are needed to prepare 21st century students; problem-based learning, case-based learning, experiential learning, project-based learning. </li></ul><ul><li>Critical thinking and meta-cognitive skills such as learning to learn, self-regulation and self-assessment are becoming more and more important. </li></ul>
  26. 26. Information and communication TECHNOLOGIES <ul><li>Confucius succinctly stated in 450 B.C: &quot;I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand.&quot; </li></ul>
  27. 27. Information and communication TECHNOLOGIES <ul><li>In an active learning environment you have to help, facilitate the learning and learn together with the students, day in day out. </li></ul><ul><li>Students looking for information on the Internet need that guidance, otherwise they will get lost in cyberspace. </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers have to be the guide that helps students find the fastest and best way towards a solution, give structure and manage time. </li></ul>
  28. 28. Information and communication TECHNOLOGIES <ul><li>The fact that educators are not an Internet expert yet is not a problem. </li></ul><ul><li>Whether you are young or old, i t takes flexibility and adaptability to react critically to new information or a new situation. </li></ul><ul><li>Flexibility is a state of mind. </li></ul>
  29. 29. Information and communication TECHNOLOGIES <ul><li>What is most important is the mindset! </li></ul>
  30. 30. Conclusion <ul><li>The Internet is putting learners into gear to become proficient drivers along the information highway. </li></ul><ul><li>You cannot be left behind. </li></ul>
