Change needs to be properly implemented

MOVING from teacher-training to teaching in school has made me reflect upon the process of change in the education system, in this case integration in ICT. It seems ICT integration does not have much significance in the teaching and learning process.

One cannot deny the fact that students learn through their teachers, and the most effective source of help for teachers is other teachers. This simply means that for any change to take place, we have to start thinking about the teachers first.

Nationwide one-off ICT workshops have been proven time and again to be ineffective. We initiate change and innovations without knowing what constitutes change.

I strongly feel that we need to stop the continuous ad-hoc strings of fragmented, unconnected policies, innovations and other demands placed upon teachers in schools if we expect them to put in more time and effort to improve their practices.
