IT Leadership Teaching Teachers

Search “technology in the classroom” and you’ll find countless people arguing the pros and cons of 1:1 vs BYOT, laptop vs. tablet, and any of the other many debates surrounding technology in the classroom. The thing about all of these arguments is that they focus on the students, and rightfully so. All education decisions should be about what benefits the students most. But when it comes to implementation, the latest gadgets are only going to benefit the students if the teachers are trained on how to use them and troubleshoot problems.

Teacher Professional Development Models in Rural and Low Income Areas

This presentation identified evidence-based models which utilize technology, evaluation, in-classroom support, OERs, and other means to improve teachers’ classroom performance in fragile and low-income contexts. Teachers have a vital role to play in the development of learners’ literacy and numeracy and other relevant life skills, yet too often standards of teaching are low and the professional support teachers receive is woefully inadequate. New approaches are therefore urgently required.

P.S. - We are coming up with some great interviews with couple of famous personalities of the education Industry . i.e. Sir Ken Robinson and Daniel Pink. So please tell us your feedback about our previous interviews in the comment box. Hope you had a good time listening to some thoughts leaders interviews .
