Dear Jennifer,

I would like to suggest the following scenario:

Malta would become a centre of excellence in ICT in education (practiceand theory). This implies a situation where all teachers are making thebest possible use of ICT in order to enhance teaching and learning in allareas of the curriculum and at all levels of our education system (primary,secondary, post-secondary and tertiary). This vision includes making mostof the communication capabilities of current and future technology in orderto promote learning at a distance and at all times of the day (e-learning)and at facilitating communication between parents/guardians and the school.It also implies a situation where Malta develops innovative ways of makinguse of ICT in our classrooms.  Once such a vision is in place we canbecome a Mediteranean centre of excellence in teacher education in thisarea. We can then offer appropriate University level courses mainly throughdistance learning.

DearColleagues,  We wouldlike to initiate an on-line discussion on alternative futures for Maltain ICT. We would like you to send us up to ten different scenario themesfor Malta in ICT.  Thesecan be scenario themes focused on:
  • specific niche areas (e.g. Malta as ane-learning hub)
  • or ICT-enabled initiatives (e.g. on-linegambling)
  • or telecomms-related initiatives
  • or any other ideas in general !!
 Ideally, this exercise should notinvolve too much time - maximum 30 minutes - just jot down what comes immediatelyto mind. So send us your feedback if possible by Thursday 22 August.Lookingforward to hearing from you, Jennifer
