Over the years, thanks to the wonderful opportunities I've had for globetrotting, I've been able to get a view on many different countries' approaches to ICT in education and eLearning in general. So, I'm going to create a series of posts on specific countries, giving a few highlights of their activities and approaches.
I'm starting with South Korea, a country I will visit at the end of this month for the KERIS annual symposium. KERIS is the leading ICT in education agency in South Korea, and is arguably one of the world leaders in this field.
Here is a set of links and articles that give an idea of what is going on in S. Korea:
- Korea Education and Research Information Service (KERIS)
- Edunet - the national portal for education (mostly in Korean only)
- UNESCO case study on ICT integration in education: S. Korea - a case study produced as part of the UNESCO SE Asian Schoolnet project
- ICT use in education: National policies, strategies and programmes an overview of S. Korea from UNESCO's Meta-survey on ICT in education
- Case study on the S. Korea Schoolnet - another case study produced as part of the UNESCO SE Asian Schoolnet project
- National science education portal - a new portal launched by the S. Korean Science Foundation (mostly in Korean only)
- Research information service system (RISS) - a national portal indexing research articles, journals and other scholarly publishing. Further details in English are available here (via KERIS).
- OECD-KERIS International Expert Meeting on ICT and Education Performance - a set of papers and presentations made at the event held in S. Korea.
