ICT in education: facing a paradigm shift

Major changes are characteristic to educational systems of different countries. Two issues are often noted with reference to them: ICT implementation and the change of educational paradigm, i.e. when the paradigm of teaching shifts into the paradigm of learning or the paradigm of teaching evolves into the paradigm of interaction which, in its turn, changes into the paradigm of learning. Researchers have noted that the depth of ICT implementation in education is related to the educational paradigm change. How and in which areas this interrelation is manifested in practice? What role in this change is played by ICT?

The above questions will be discussed in this presentation. Its aim is to analyse the potential of ICT in education in relation to the changing educational paradigm.
