I agree with Dr Falzon's interpretation about the definition of a scenario.
A scenario may take an optimistic view or a pragmatic view of future
events. Examination of a "Do-Nothing" option may be considered as a
pragmatic scenario or something which lies between the two.

Please respond to

I'm not sure whether this idea could be called a scenario, but a future I
see would be one where, particularly in education, ICT is much more
European in dimension. It seems that currently, most software and
therefore IT education, knowledge and even thought processes are based on
US creations. A possible scenario would therefore be Malta being a centre
(or playing a central role) for the creation of a European knowledge-based
society where all the various European cultures (particularly north and
south) are brought together to create and advance a European
thought-process, which is undeniably different from an American process.
Also, I also see a scenario where ICT, notwithstanding developments etc.,
is kept at citizen level becoming a tool to implement social policies at
every social level.
I hope I have been clear and that this could help in some way.

Dear Colleagues,
We would like to initiate an on-line discussion on alternative futures for
Malta in ICT. We would like you to send us up to ten different scenario
themes for Malta in ICT.
These can be scenario themes focused on:
specific niche areas (e.g. Malta as an e-learning hub)
or ICT-enabled initiatives (e.g. on-line gambling)
or telecomms-related initiatives
or any other ideas in general !!
Ideally, this exercise should not involve too much time - maximum 30
minutes - just jot down what comes immediately to mind. So send us your
feedback if possible by Thursday 22 August.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Dr. Jennifer Cassingena Harper
