ICT for Educational and Social Innovations
Tuesday, June 25 2:45 PM-3:45 PM Location: Salon A
Abstract: There have been many projects around the world applying information and communication technology (ICT) for educational and social developments. These are most of the time are innovative and are mostly country specific. Very few of the projects on educational developments are well researched and the implementation results are presented at the conferences and published in journals. Latchem (2006) pointed out that projects applying (ICT) to social development are rarely researched, evaluated or reported, and even when they are, the conceptualization, design, conduct and reporting of this work often lacks quality. There is a need for far more rigorous research into ICT projects at the national, organizational and practitioner levels, to achieve a body of research that can guide future planning and practice. This panel will be organized to discuss the ideas and the projects for educational and social development. This is a new area of bringing in innovations through creative problem solving using ICT tools and technologies.
