ICT in the 21st
Katherine Thompson Social Networking Mobile Phone technology E-Learning The Internet Totton College Conclusion Columbus "ICT has made significant changes to the way
we work, learn, relax and govern ourselves"
(Clarke/Englebert) “Functional skills are central to the government’s reform of 14-19 and adult education, and the measure which government is taking to equip the UK with the skills it needs for the 21st century” (National strategies, dcsf, 2009). Teachers in institutions may feel (consecutively) “excited, apprehensive, questioning, determined, over-stimulated, questioning (again) and exhausted in attempting to integrate newer technologies into learning.” (McConigle and Eggers, 1998) Progression in ICT has been both celebrated and feared as some academics insist that integrating new technologies and virtual environments into pedagogies that have been “largely unchanged for centuries” will not prepare students in wider skills that more traditional teaching methods provide (Graham, McNiell & Pettiford 2000). “We have to remember that new technology is there, not for its own sake, but for enhancing learning, so we have to embrace it. Leaders’ should be a role model. It’s actually an advantage if you’re not confident, because it gives out a signal that we can all learn and develop new skills and that technology matters.” (Lifelong learning UK, 2009). ‘In 2009, more than a quarter of the world’s population, use the Internet,’ (ITU 2009). Using ICT effectively
and appropriately in
education The World Wide Web (www) or ‘the web’ is a form of information communication technology that has grown into a global network of an estimated 1,733,993,741 people, a growth of 380.3% since 2000 (Internet world stats, 03/12/09, 2009). An ‘Apple Distinguished Educator’ asks, “how do you educate a generation of students eternally distracted by the internet, cell phones and video games? Easy… You enable them by handing out free iPhones — and then integrating the gadget into your curriculum” (Rankin, 2009). At what cost? Different ICT?

‘The objective is to identify systematic misuse so as to protect the College, staff, students, clients and the general public without imposing too intrusive a regime’ (Internet, intranet and email policy, Totton College, 2008). “In general management, you have to have a vision of what the end point is; with IT, you approve the general direction but you don’t know where it’s going to end; you don’t know what it might lead to.” John Stone, Chief Executive of the Learning and Skills Network (Lifelong learning UK, 2009). The future of education is undoubtedly going
to be effected further by ICT developments in a huge way,
it is therefore a matter of teachers and those involved in education
to be prepared for ‘cyber-survival.’ Link to Prezi online

The new initiative ‘iLearn’ is a VLE (Virtual learning environment), formally integrated in September 2009. Following a link from the college intranet, all departments across the college (as required) have added resources and various E-learning materials for each course. The College use ‘Moodle’ which is ‘a Course Management System (CMS), also known as a Learning Management System (LMS) or a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). It is a free web application that educators can use to create effective online learning sites’ (Moodle, 2009).
