  17. 17. DiscussionWe are now climbing the mountain of change made possibleby the rapid development and availability of the Internet.These developments have already begun to fundamentallyalter the way in which we can utilize ICT in our classrooms.The access to the Internet outside of formal classroom settingshas opened up possibilities that were unimaginable someyears ago.For many students their home will be the principal place ofaccess to the Internet and the word classroom will assume awhole new meaning.
  18. 18. …Contd.The Ministry of Education’s ICT Strategy should clearly statethe potential of ICT that will remove the classroom boundariesand enables teachers and students in urban and rural areas toaccess a range of learning opportunities from around theworld.The policy should focus on the needs of e-teaching and e-teachers. Teachers should be well trained to become e-Teachers. They must be capable to develop online contentstoo. And that is nearly impossible without involvement of thegovernment body.After that, the technology implementation part arises.
  19. 19. If time, location and how long a student sits in aseat are no longer the defining elements of aschool then how does a school committed to e-education define their role and operation?
  20. 20. Big Question ?How will schools accommodate the needs of staff whochoose not to adopt the role of e-teachers?How will schools determine student numbers whenstudents are attending multiple institutions?How will schools allocate costs of shared facilities, staffand students?How will schools measure irregular "attendance"patterns or will they need to?How will student class participation patterns bemeasured?
  21. 21. …Contd. How will schools accommodate the professional development ofteachers based in their school so they can move toward being e-teachers? How different will the e-curriculum need to be? How will e-teacher’s workloads be measured when the preparationof e-learning materials will need to be started many months beforethe start of the e-class? How will teacher’s workload and compensation be worked out whenthey work in multiple locations and institutions? How will teachers teach and measure the work of students who areall working at different paces and in different places? What are the support needs of e-teachers and how can they accessthis support?
  22. 22. … Contd. Will e-teaching be part of the ‘job description’ of all newly hiredteachers in schools? How will the Ministry of Education accommodate different types ofschools with many different structures and characteristics? How will families accommodate the e-learning of students who may nolonger attend school at the traditional times of the day? How will families make choices from a wide range of educational choicesfor their children? How will the needs of students change as they take the opportunity todetermine some of their own learning goals? The students who experience e-learning in secondary education willexpect these same opportunities in tertiary education and the chance topursue life-long learning opportunities. Will e-teachers be ready for thedemand?
  23. 23. …Contd.How will teacher education meet the challenge ofoffering e-education for future e-teachers? Who willcreate the content and maintain the online learningenvironments?How will the quality of online courses offered by for-profit organizations be monitored?How will the issue of the copyright of e-learninginformation and materials used for e-teaching beaddressed?
  24. 24. Let’s Promise to ACTLet’s get started to convert eEducation promises topractice.WHY to be late if wenecessarily need to GO?
