Should we vest students as co-owners of market-based schools?

Is it possible that healthier outcomes would emerge by engaging students as designers -- and stakeholders -- of for-profit learning ventures that compete with under-performing schools?

A new framework for success-sharing

Many states now permit formation of for-profit charter schools,… Continue

Using free Web 2.0 tools in education

A few friends and I have been working at a startup building a tool for very large conversations online. We've only recently introduced it to the world of education, and we are very excited at the possibilities. Students as young as eighth grade have found it easy enough to use. The importance of this type of technology is that it challenges students how to really think about what they want to say; that sounds simple, but the results are surprising.

It can be used when teachers want… Continue

Designing in virtual world of Second Life

How difficult is for an educator to innovate in teaching and learning? To invent and implement new pedagogies?

Has anyone else ever tried something like this?

La place des TIC dans le secteur d'éducation en Afrique

En Afrique, l’enseignement supérieur a apporté une formation importante des ressources humaines requises, un atout majeur au système éducatif et à la fonction publique. Au Burkina Faso, on décompte plus de quatre(4) Universités publiques et plus de quinze (15) écoles supérieures Privées.

Sur le continent, il existe plusieurs projets académiques tels que :

Les études supérieures en Afrique noire

S'auto former, c'est tracer son chemin.

Depuis un certain temps, nous remarquons en Afrique dans le secteur privé, l'ouverture d'un grand nombre des écoles supérieures de nature variée. Cela pour contrecarrer l'Europe face à certaines décisions politiques de ne plus accueillir un grand nombre d'étudiants noirs sur leurs sols de peur de faire des soit disant «sans papiers ».

Les pays Africains conscients de la portée des études supérieures et… Continue

Le coût d'accès Internet en Afrique

Internet, le réseau des réseaux est un réseau mondial qui fournit plusieurs services tels que:

Le web,

La méssagerie,

Les recherches.

En Afrique, on peut dire qu'on a une certaine chance d'utiliser les dernières technologies, bien que cela apparaisse absurde. Une concurrence farouche entre Fournisseurs publiques et privés occasionne l'offre des dernières technologies. Néanmoins les coûts d'accès restent élevés compte tenu des facteurs… Continue
