Comments for Education chat https://blog.wef-international.org A place to discuss education Wed, 08 Mar 2017 06:05:38 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=5.8.1 Comment on Back to the Future – or not by priti sachter https://blog.wef-international.org/?p=16#comment-464 Wed, 08 Mar 2017 06:05:38 +0000 http://blog.wef-international.org/?p=16#comment-464 In reply to Judith Casburn.

indeed Judith, — there was a time when we were not allowing mobile phones in the schools. they would be confiscated for the term. today however, we are encouraging students to use the immense possibilities of the mobiles and tablets to access more and more information and come up with the latest in every area of interest. This acts as well, as a motivator , students are vying with each other to get the latest and the best available on the internet. it also makes teachers and students communicate with each other in real time. Education is moving more and more towards making it easier for students to access information and for education to access students who could not be easily reached earlier. we have surely come a long way!!

Comment on Back to the Future – or not by Judith Casburn https://blog.wef-international.org/?p=16#comment-31 Wed, 24 Feb 2016 23:22:14 +0000 http://blog.wef-international.org/?p=16#comment-31 I think the Asian Conference in Mumbai early this year on ‘Role of Information and Communication Technologies in Reading and Developing Learning Society’ emphasised the importance of mobiles in learning. I was a skeptic but am convinced after hearing the many speakers at the conference including David Turner that mobiles etc. are a necessity.
