ICT & Education @ TED. With the buzz from this year's influential TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conference (9-13 February) now starting to fade, I thought it might be interesting to re-visit some of the highlights from past conferences on topics related to ICT and education.
While presentations at the conference cover a wide variety of topics, some 'TEDtalks' provide quite illuminating, and sometimes quite provocative, glimpses and insights into how technology *might* be used in various innovative ways to enhance education in the future. I am regularly amazed at the number of times that people in ministries of education all around the world ask me about something they first learned about through TED. While we were, yet again, not in attendance this year, the conference organizers have done the wonderful (and laudable!)
Job of making available the 'TEDtalks' through the TED web site for free. TEDtalks: Understanding ICT for development I: ICT for development. About the programme. SIDC combines face-to-face learning during two intensive periods in Sweden (three and five weeks respectively), online courses and a one week follow up in New York.
The programme is built around two rigorous periods in Sweden, consisting of study visits, lectures and interactive seminars. The network, knowledge and skills gained during these periods are of substantial importance to the development of the change project conducted over the course of the year. SIDC suits applicants with already existing outreach platforms who wish to combine their participation in the programme with other work commitments. In average participants spend around 40 hours per week on the programme. However, candidates are free to organize the programme work in a way that suits their other commitments.
