The use of open and free source software’s like Open Office, Web 2.0 tools and pod casting was promoted during the IMIH 2.0 event (110 participants). One of the objectives of the IMIH 2.0 event was to thank the major stakeholders of the project and develop a plan for the future. Via a mind map the managers and the teachers per level were asked to imagine the future… Circa 40 DOET also attended the IMIH 2.0 event. They were all given the learning materials and explanation on the vision of IMIH on ICT integration. Mr. An, head of the ICT club, vowed to play an important role in IMIH 2.0 together with the management of HRCTEM. More pilot schools will be allowed to join IMIH 2.0. 18 IMIH 2.0 banners were distributed with a comprehensive list of relevant websites that reflect the IMIH strategy to successfully integrate ICT in all aspects of education. During the IMIH 2.0 event at the Horison Hotel HRCTEM clearly indicated it will take the lead during the ICT integration school year 2008-2009. The MOET and other educational stakeholders recognise HRCTEM as a centre of excellence in ICT integration.

SEN & ICT

July 24, 2008

Peter van Gils and Chris Dewaele gave a final workshop on special educational care and ICT in July 2008 (35 participants). (See http://learnhub.com/courses/331-special-educational-needs-and-ict) As part of the SEN & ICT workshop a field trip to Special Educational Schools took place (E.g. S.O.S. Children Village-16 participants).

 

Teachings duringthe “SEN & ICT” workshop clearly showed a radical change in teaching and learning. Experiments with collaborative group work in the RC3 at HRCTEM actually foster the conditions that lead to quality learning outcomes in a flexible learning environment. Flexible learning is often taken as synonymous with distance education but flexibility can also involve options in course resources, in types of learning activities, in media to support learning, and many other possibilities. 

 

 

Evaluations indicated that active teaching and learning in a flexible learning environment can satisfy many stakeholders in education.

ICTEM & IMIH

July 24, 2008

IMIH members successfully teamed up with the ICTEM project of HCMC (EMTC2) during their Stepping Stone event (May 2008) and a joined workshop in Bali (June 2008-24 participants) to exchange the lessons learned, explain strategies and share the resources. (For example http://www.giaovien.net and http://ict4schoolsinvietnam.ning.com/) ICTEM further introduced the new ICTEM DVD-CDROM Box that very clearly and practically explains the different uses of ICT in the classroom.  The ICT4ESD study trip also shed a light on what role ICT can play in so-called Green Schools. (See http://www.greenschool.org/archive/preschool_sprouts/) That way the visit was very instrumental to envision the future and to build a common vision for the project.
