UNESCO launches ICT-in-Education online community
As part of a new "Knowledge Communities" project, UNESCO Office in Bangkok has launched an online ICT-in-Education community: an interactive forum which welcomes educators, teachers, administrators, policy makers and others to share their ideas and opinions on topics relating to the use of ICT in education.
The purpose of the online community is to foster discussion of topics relating to the integration of ICT in teaching and learning. Topics will cover areas such as:
- ICT for Policy Makers,
- ICT in Teaching and Learning,
- ICT in Teacher Training, and
- Free and Open Source Software in education.
Members of the online community will have the opportunity to share their knowledge about the use of ICT in education, to discuss recent developments and announce events and conferences. They will also be able to review and exchange teaching materials, such as lesson plans, training guidelines and toolkits with other participants.
Participants will also benefit from the possibilities of expanding their networks, meeting interesting people and building partnerships through the forum.
The Knowledge Communities project and the online forum are supported by Japanese Funds-in-Trust.
Everybody interested in the field of ICT in Education is welcome to join the online community. Registration and participation in the forum is free. To become a member, simply register on the <a target="_blank" href="http://www.unescobkk.org/forum/education/ict">forum website</a>.
