Enhancing Education


The world we live in

The world we live in

  • Internet use doubles every 100 days.

  • Radio was in existence 38 years before

  • 50 million people tuned in; TV took

  • 13 years to reach that benchmark.

  • The Emerging Digital Economy, US Commerce Dept.


The world we live in1

The world we live in

  • Sixteen years after the first PC kit

  • came out, 50 million people

  • were using one.

  • Once it was opened to the general

  • public, the Internet crossed that line

  • in four years.

  • The Emerging Digital Economy, US Commerce Dept.


The world we live in2

The world we live in

  • Information technology has already

  • Workers.

  • Countries that have an insufficient supply of

  • skilled workers will see high-skilled, high-paying

  • jobs migrate to countries that can supply the

  • needed talent.

How do we use technology to enhance teaching and learning

How do we use technology to enhance teaching and learning?

We have a duty to our students to use

technology to enhance teaching and research.

We have a duty to ensure that all of our

students have an appropriate

familiarity with the technology that is so

rapidly remaking the world.


How do we use technology to enhance teaching and learning1

How do we use technology to enhance teaching and learning?

By using technology to enhance teaching and

Enhancing education

Enhancing Education

It is incumbent upon the faculties of research

universities to think carefully and systematically

not only about how to make the most effective

use of existing technologies but also how to

create new ones that will enhance their own

teaching and that of their colleagues.

The best teachers and researchers should be

thinking about how to design courses in

which technology enriches teaching rather

than substitutes for it.
