Both rich countries and poor countries hope that technology can improve and expand schooling. Are they deluded?// Drawing on his new book Mega-Schools, Technology and Teachers: Achieving Education for All, Sir John Daniel will address four questions. Can ICTs go beyond teaching children computer literacy to improving learning generally? Can technology-based Open Schooling give 400 million out-of-school 12-17 year olds access to secondary education? Can distance learning swing the focus of teacher education from theoretical pre-service study to in-service courses that really improve teaching skills? Are Open Educational Resources just another fad or could they revolutionize knowledge sharing globally?
