I was born 31 years past,Tanzania is my country of birth educated in a catholic school "Kaengesa Seminary Secondary School" from 1991 to 1995 joined high school in 1996 to 1998.In the year 2003 i joined The University of Dar es salaam for a nine month certificate course in law completed in june 2004.Presentry i'm working as a public servant in the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania in the ministry of Public Safety and Security and first year student at The Open University of Tanzania taking Bachelor in Law.I'm also among founder member of Uyoga Development Group a non-profit making organisation operating in Dar es salaam Tanzania.My field of interest include Social work,book reading,writing,attending seminars,volunteering and uplifting of youth and women.
My DeepestValue relies on the right to Education and i have committed myself to making it a priority,for education is a fundamental human right,set fourth in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948.
My Own Point of View: We may be highly educated,but if we are without deep integration of thought and feeling,our lives are incomplete,and as long as education does not cultivate an integrated outlook on life,it has very little significance. To remain economically competitive and prosper in this global knowledge-driven economy,countries cannot afford to have large sectors of their population excluded from education,or at the lower level of the education process. Education is positively related to development.
Thinking About the Use of Technology in Education
I have been thinking about the use of technology in education,that is say in learning and teaching,by exploring some simple questions.
Why technology is useful?
Why should technology be used for learning?
How should technology be used for learning and teaching?
What are the basic principles?
Who can benefit most from educational technology?
Where should it be applied?
Which technology are best?
Before we assume that technology is the answer i think we should ask what is the question that it answers. People who develop new technologies for computers or cars have some simple aims..They want to make them faster,more powerful,more efficient,more user friendly and more attractive.What are the equivalents in education?. Today ordinary people and their governments have more concerns about three key issues.The first is access,the second is quality and the third is cost. The major problem in education today is that hundreds of millions of world's citizens do not receive it.Many more do not get enough of it.Over million children never see the inside of the school.A related issue;one that worries many parents whose their children do go to school,is the quality of education that their offspring receive, and this problem is big in Tanzania as you 'll later learn in this page.,,Am exploring in the use of technology in education so anyone who can provide useful information or links to help when am still doing my research is welcomed here to leave comments.
