  • • Knowledge society agenda • Pervasiveness of technology • “Education for All” goals • Present future national strategic objectives • Highlight the broad aims of the various national and international initiatives regarding continuous professional development of teachers with regard to teacher competency standards relating to ICTs and professional aptitude
  • Therefore Knowledge society can be defined as a human society, in which knowledge should bring justice, solidarity, democracy and peace. Knowledge can be used as a tool that can be a force for changing society as a whole. A society which should provide universel and equitable accès to information. A society in which should provide collective and unbiased access to information to everyone. Everyone having proper access to information and living in a fair and just society. A society filled with people who are knowledgeable and people who have an eagerness to learn . A knowledge society views education as a tool that unbounds them from the shackles of poverty and it prunes individual who are liberated.
  • That is why it is very important for educators to continually develop and improve their skills and knowledge in the field of education. The knowledge society agenda looks at how one can be a teacher in a knowledgeable society. If one could define knowledge its understanding of or information about a subject which a person gets by experience or study. Knowledge society can be defined as a human society, in which knowledge should bring justice, solidarity, democracy and peace. Knowledge can be used as a tool that can be a force for changing society as a whole. A so
  • Picture 1-A society which provides access information to everyonePicture 2-A society which views education as important and in which knowledge should bring justice, solidarity, democracy and peace.
  • Knowledge can be used as a tool that can be a force for changing society as a whole. A knowledge-based society refers to the type of society that is needed to compete and succeed in the changing economic and political dynamics of the modern world. It refers to societies that are well educated, and who therefore rely on the knowledge of their citizens to drive the innovation, entrepreneurship and dynamism of that society’s economy. 
  • . In order to build Knowledge society it can be incorporated with ICT (Information communication technology). It means that technology needs to be included in the process of teaching and learning< it must be used as an essential tool in the classroom. Technology is one essential tool because it facilities better learning and teaching in the classroom. It provides better understanding for the learner and with the teacher present learners become more comfortable.
  • Teachers need to develop new aptitudes in order to be fully qualified to teach in the knowledge society, because one needs to understand that it is a changing society and we need teachers who are trained and fully compatible with the knowledge society. In order to arrive in a knowledge society we need new knowledge that cannot diminish to traditional disciplines. We need knowledge that cannot destroy our traditional disciplines because we are a society that has a rich sense of culture and technology.
  • Pervasive computing is a circumstance, just like heat in Africa. Pervasive computing relies more on the union of wireless technology and electronics and even internet is included. The pervasive computing it is also called as omnipresent computing, the word omnipresent it means exits. If technology users carefully consider both the advantages and shortcomings of technology use, they are more likely to maximize the gains and minimize the losses.Pervasive technology is very important especially in the education sector I plays one of the huge roles in the education sector
  • The day to day activities that we do everyday that include technology it goes on an on, it is limitless because technology has become part of our live. If you think about what you do every day that involves technology, the list is both amazing and worrisome. Much of what we do in some way involves technology that we do not much notice and likely do not understand. Mobile phones are a pervasive platform for opportunistic sensing of behaviours and opinions.
  • When students read from the screen instead of from a hard copy of a book, what are the gains and losses? What about when they take classes online instead of face to face? Or when they use Internet resources instead of those from the library? If technology users carefully consider both the advantages and shortcomings of technology use, they are more likely to maximize the gains and minimize the losses.
  • In order for a country to develop, education is very important and must be seen as one of crucial aspects that a country can invest in. in order to assuage and make the living conditions of the society better we need to invest in education and see it as a long term aspect. In the society that we inhibit we know that there are inequalities amongst us, and that not all of us can be equal in order to address the issue of inequalities education is the only tool that can combat it.
  • . Education is considered to be very important in one’s life because it validates people’s self-worth that they actually mean something to society and that they are someone. Education enables people to take charge of their own destinies and be the driver of their own personal life instead of just being an observer in their own. Education enables people to take charge of their own destinies and be the driver of their own personal life instead of just being an observer in their own lives. It gives people the confidence of taking care of their own families and being a valuable member among the community, being responsible and also taking charge of their own responsibilities
  • Quality education and technology shifts are necessary to solve present day problem, that we are facing as a society, we need an education system that will build learners in better citizens and become more confident. Which is why it is very important when in learning and teaching environment as a teacher it is important for one to equip him/her with the necessary technological tools in order to solve day to day problems that may arise in the process of learning. Education may not be seen as a tool to solve complications, but it must be seen as a society’s way to respond and try and deal with inequalities and also try to assuage poverty.
  • Education may not be seen as a tool to solve complications, but it must be seen as a society’s way to respond and try and deal with inequalities and also try to assuage poverty. Quality education promotes economic growth, empowers woman, fights sickness but most of all it ends the chain of poverty
  • As much as education is important in our daily lives, technology, science and mathematics are very much important and as a country we are faced with a shortages regarding this subjects. Teachers who teach this particular subjects are very rare and in which it makes it difficult for leaners to choose these. it is also important for South Africa’s future, because one knows that we all live in an unequal society where the uneducated are marginalized, the is a huge gap between the rich and the poor and that can only be resolved with education. Higher education in universities it is very crucial in alleviating the social pandemics that we have as a country
  • Thirdly higher education provides prospects for social mobility and makes us become all equal. Learners need to have quality education from the on-set which means learners need to have access to quality education from the beginning of their schooling, it means from the beginning of primary school till university level learners need to have access to quality education in order to contest poverty.
  • The citizens of South Africa we all know that our education system is not up to standard and is not ranked as one of the highest in the world. The department of education aims by the year 2015 everyone will have access to education, free education for all. As In the education department they are certain goals and targets that we need to achieve by the year 2030 especially in the education sector because it is facing too many problems.
  • Early childhood development is very important this means that the development of the child’s emotional, physical, cognitive, sensory and social from birth and school going age. We as a society we need to focus on children under the age of five years old, so that when the child is preparing to go to school in would become very easy for the process of learning for the child because the child already has knowledge. We all know that in South Africa our main problem is poverty so by investing in early development we can alleviate poverty, as a school teachers were the teaching and learning cannot be achieved
  • Presently the government introduced feeding scheme in each and every public school were learners are offered lunch to eat, by doing so the government is eradicating child under-nutrition, so that learners can have proper balanced diet. For a child to develop the child needs vitamin a in their diets so we need to eradicate the problem of vitamin a in school level
  • Teachers play a very crucial role in the education system of South Africa and the biggest challenge that we are currently faced with as a country is that, the are many teachers who are in the profession but they do not possess the qualifications that is needed for the profession. That is why the government needs take initiative in order to develop us, the teachers of the country; especially in the field of Mathematics and Science. they should be workshop in place that will develop the teachers especially in the field of Science, Mathematics and Technology. From the saber-tooth curriculum we learned that society needs to learn something that is related to the current surrounding they are living, the curriculum must cater for their needs.
  • Increase adult literacy by 50 precent – as a country we a faced with a huge number of illiteracy in our society, the government aims to improve that by offering workshops that will improve the lives of people. The government has also funded ABET schools where elderly people can go and try to improve their numeracy skills so that we can be a better society
  • Further education and skills development training- the further education and skills development needs to give learners clear and meaningful education especially when it come to terms with further education especially for learners who have obtained low marks in the National Senior certificate. They need to offer meaningful further education because we know that we have adults who did not have access to proper education. As a country we also have a high number of drop- outs rates in the country
  • Higher education is considered very much important especially in a learners life by doing so university need to set mission statements that tells us in details what it wants to achieve and how their students will be after doing a course . Universities need to be up to standard because we are all products of schooling and it Is very important for universities to continually asses if their achieving their objectives as an institution that provides higher learning.
  • Design and Develop Digital Age Learning Experiences and Assessments-Educators design, develop, and assess accurate learning experiences and assessment uniting modern tools and resources to get the most out of content learning in context and to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes. identified in the NETS·S. a.
