Earlier this year, the Technical Association of Pulp and Paper Industry of South Africa (TAPPSA) has asked Michael Wolf a couple of questions for their journal around e-Learning and technology in South African classrooms.
Education can benefit from ICT in a host of different areas from organisational management to learning tools, but what is the most powerful opportunity of all?
I recently spoke at a workshop with the title “The South African classroom of the future” at CSIR, Meraka institute in Pretoria. In my presentation “Tools for the classroom of the tomorrow” I discussed the following 4 questions:
- What are technology tools for learning?
- How do technology tools benefit the classroom of today?
- What are the requirements for the design of tools for the classroom of tomorrow?
- What are the key technologies for the classroom of tomorrow?
In this blog post I will deal with the first 2 questions.
