Teachers, Teaching and ICTs

Publicado el 5/2/2006 – 7:40 pm | por lbarriocanal |

Educalibre se hace eco de un reciente trabajo publicado por el programa de Información para el Desarrollo InfoDev, que depende del Banco Mundial, titulado Mapas del Conocimento: Qué sabemos y qué no sabemos del uso de las TICs en educación.

Copio y pego algunas de las ideas que me parecen más destacables (la traducción se la dejo a alguien que sepa más inglés que yo)

  • Access to ICTs is the most significant factor in whether teachers use them
    The most significant factor for continuing the development of teachers’ ICT-related skills is for them to have regular access to functioning and relevant ICT equipment.
  • Support from school administration and the commuity can be important
    Support of school administrators and, in some cases, the surrounding community, for teacher use of ICTs is seen as critical if ICTs are to be used at all, let alone effectively. For this reason, targeted outreach to both groups is often necessary if investments in ICTs to support education are to be optimized.
  • Incentives must be developed to promote effective teacher participation in continuing professional development
    Teachers require additional motivation and incentives to participate actively in professional development activities. A variety of incentives can be used, including certification, professional advancement, pay increases, paid time off to participate in professional development, formal and informal recognition at the school and community levels and among peers, reduced isolation, and enhanced productivity.
  • Communities of practice can be importants tools to support teacher professional development
    The existence of formal and informal communities of practice and peer networks can be important tools to support ICT in education initiatives and activities. Such support mechanisms can be facilitated through the use of ICTs.

Como se puede ver, es exactamente la política que se está llevando a cabo aquí ¿O no?
