Report Calls for Ed. Tech. Training

Here’s an study reported about in Education Week that might interest you:

“If teachers around the world do not take part in more professional-development training in information and communication technologies, or ICT, they will continue to lack the skills necessary to integrate technology into the classroom and improve student learning, concludes a report by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization .”

So says a new report by UNESCO, the Paris-based body of the United Nations that promotes international cooperation in education, science, and culture.

According to the article in Education Week:

“UNESCO’S goal in producing the report is to establish a basic set of skills and qualifications that educators must acquire and to encourage countries to provide professional development to help them develop those skills.”


As we all know this report will make the difference and finally put us on the road to quality training for teachers in technology … hey I can dream!

Learning is messy!

    I agree 101% We are already way behind integrating technology and our curriculum in our country. But then again I am preaching to the choir.

    Keep Writing. I not only enjoy reading your blog but it is nice to know there are other people out there that think the way I do.
