Challenging the pupil
- From pupil to student • The pupil becomes a student
• Formulating his/her own goals for the learning
process
• Controlling the personal learning process
• Finding relevant information
• Organizing and formulating knowledge on their
own
• Production of knowledge rather than just reproduction

Challenging the teacher
• The teacher primarily functions as a consultant
• f2f
• Decreasing control – in traditional terms - of the
learning process
• Setting the students ‘free’
• New forms of evaluation with focus on both
process and product

But why ICT?
• ICT removes problems concerning space and time
– the students can communicate any where, any time
– the students can contact the teacher any where, any
time
– the students can collect and exchange information any
where, any time
• ICT gives access to knowledge
– in principle the students can draw on a global pool of
knowledge
• ICT makes saving – and sharing – knowledge
easier
– the students can, individually and/or together create
records of notes and presentations (portfolio) and thus
register their progress and use it for exams
