MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
Nowadays the role of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), especially internet in the education sector plays an important role, especially in the process of empowering the technology into the educational activities.
As school managers and administrators we must become aware of the use of technology in our schools and must strategize to make our schools e-confident. We need to develop a shared vision and technology plan of the direction we need to take, study its implications and negotiate provisions for the school, while leading the change.
Being part of a fast growing school system we need to ensure that we empower the teachers to use technology comfortably and to ensure continuity. Being aware of the significant role of ICT in their life, especially in the educational activities, teachers can improve the effective and meaningful educational process by anticipating and eliminating the negative impact of ICT.
Technology definitely adds an extra dimension to the classroom, giving teachers more ways to inspire and capture the imaginations of their pupils. It’s important to make sure however, that teachers are given the training to ensure that they are comfortable with this integrated technology, and are able to harness it’s potential effectively.
Teachers should use technology to change their way of teaching, employing effective ways to reach different types of learners and assess student understanding through multiple means, and we must provide our students the opportunity to use technology in the study of all subject areas.
Through technology-enabled project learning, students will acquire and refine their analysis and problem-solving skills as they work individually and in teams to find, process, and synthesize information they've found online.
When technology is effectively integrated into subject areas, teaching and learning is more meaningful and fun.
