UNESCO Bangkok releases ICT in Education Capacity Building Modules CD-ROM

Education. Technology. 21st Century. {still comprehensible} Wikis. Blogs. Twitter.

UNESCO Bangkok with funding support from Japanese-Funds-In-Trust (JFIT) has recently published an e-learning CD-ROM containing two modules.

  • Module 1: ICT in Education Essentials: provides learners with essential information about ICT in education and aims to promote common understanding about the topic in the education sector.
  • Module 2: ICT in Education Decision Making: helps learners to consider the different factors involved in choosing the appropriate technology to use in a particular education setting. The two modules were especially designed for policymakers, educational planners, school administrators, education specialist and educators, in general.

Both modules are lively, colorful and highly interactive. According to one person’s feedback: “I only planned to see a few screens to see how it looks. Then I got hooked and ended up completing the two modules which lasted for about an hour.” Another said: “This is very informative. Now I understand more about ICT in Education. I will recommend this to my other colleagues.” The rationale for producing this CD is pretty simple; UNESCO Bangkok wants to promote and raise awareness on ICT in Education but it is impossible to reach everyone and invite them to attend workshops. The only way to do this is to use ICT itself. Practice what you preach!

You can obtain copies of the CD (maximum of five CD-ROMs) by sending a request to: ictinfo@unescobkk.org. After completing the course, you will be able to print a certificate, which you can send to UNESCO Bangkok and your name will be posted onto our website. By this, we hope to raise the level of awareness and build a network of people working in the education sector that have a common understanding of how technology can help education in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.
