E-Education: Recommendation of using IT to innovate strategic management Introduction Our world is changing, and information technology (IT) is central to this change. Digital media has revolutionized the information society. These advances in using information technology have dramatically changed the strategic management, and have expanded new learning opportunities and access to educational resources beyond those traditionally available (Asmal, 2003). This was known as E-education. The concept of E-education revolves around the use of IT to accelerate the achievement of national education goals (Harrison, 2002). E-education relies upon information technologies-especially the Internet-to mediate the interactions among students, instructors, and instructional content that foster learning (Asmal, 2003). It is about connecting learners to other learners, teachers to professional support services and providing platforms for learning. E-education will connect learners and teachers to better information, ideas and one another via effective combinations of pedagogy and technology (Denis, 2000). Many schools are exploiting the benefits of using information technology to enhance the quality of teaching. In addition, IT has the potential to enhance the management and administrative capacity of schools. The services provided by the initiative will enhance lifelong learning and provide unlimited opportunities for personal growth and development to all (Harrison, 2002). Recommendations Ann (2000) point that "the great 20C inventions in media and communications - telephony, cinema, radio, television, and digital technologies of all kinds - have radically changed the way that people acquire knowledge and have brought about the emergence of economies based on knowledge and on services built around knowledge." ...read more.


3. Information technology on teaching and learning system. Information technology, when successfully integrated into teaching and learning, can ensure the meaningful interaction of learners with information (Veigal, 2000). IT can advance cognitive skills such as comprehension, reasoning, problem-solving and creative thinking (Stallings, 2001). Success in the infusion of IT into teaching and learning will ensure that all learners will be equipped for full participation in the knowledge society before they leave a further education and training institution (Harrison, 2002). For example, these learners are likely to utilize e-Government processes, not only to acquire and use information, but also to implement public sector reforms that can enhance transparency in government operations. These learners can use IT to enhance interaction between citizens, governmental organizations and public and elected officials. Experience worldwide suggests that IT does play a role in the transformation of education and training (Ross, 2004). IT can enhance educational reform by enabling teachers and learners to move away from traditional approaches to teaching and learning (Harrison, 2002). To ensure IT can be used in the teaching and learning system abroad. According to Denis (2000), in a transformed educational environment, there support to be a shift from teacher-centred, task-oriented, memory-based education (with technology at the periphery), to an inclusive and integrated practice where learners work collaboratively, develop shared practices, engage in meaningful contexts and develop creative thinking and problem-solving skills. Enriching the educational environment through the use of IT is a continuum, a process that takes learners and teachers through learning about IT (exploring what can be ...read more.


In order to increase administrative efficiency through the use of computerized information systems, the computer department should develop standardized templates for management, statistical analysis, record keeping and reporting. Conclusion New models of learning are radically changing our conception of education. Education for human development in the learning society requires collaborative learning and involves focusing on building knowledge (Asmal, 2003). These changes arise from shifts in educational goals, and from new concepts in learning and knowledge creation. In the information society, the E-education has unlimited development space. The above just give some recommendations to the educational leader who want to evaluate their educational system. Though E-education is rapidly changed in nowadays, there are still some limitations of E-education. First of all, online education can be offered only in certain degrees. Any field of study that requires faculty evaluation of hands-on student work would not be a good candidate as an e-education program (Harrison, 2002). Secondly, technology will change. Bandwidth and access speed will increase. Eventually, it will be possible to record lectures and make them available for students to download at their convenience. But will everyone be able to go online? Not without developing and adopting a new way to view the educational process (Harrison, 2002). The last but not least, does the Internet mean that there will no longer be a place for the traditional classroom? Not in the foreseeable future, the face-to- face exchange of ideas will always have a place in the academic world (Harrison, 2002). So the online education always can't totally instead of traditional classroom teaching. The Internet merely opens up additional delivery methods and makes education more accessible. ...read more.
