Schoolnet Toolkit

This toolkit arose from recognition of the need among teachers in Southeast Asia for a guide book that would help them to establish or strengthen Schoolnets in their countries.
This publication was produced as part of a UNESCO project titled, "Strengthening Use of ICTs in Schools and Schoolnet in Southeast Asian Countries", funded by Japanese Funds in Trust (JFIT) and the ASEAN Foundation.
This project aimed to: a) explore and demonstrate how ICT can be used in schools to improve the quality of education and better prepare youth for the demands of the Knowledge Society; b) test innovative models of ICT use in schools and in other places of learning; and c) improve connectivity and access to educational resources through the establishment of SchoolNets in Southeast Asia. The project established or strengthened national Schoolnets in eight countries (Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philipines, Thailand and Viet Nam).

Manual for the Tutors of Learning Centres in Open Schools

This is a manual for all those who would like to take up the challenging task of acting as a Tutor in an educational programme following Open and Distance Learning (ODL) methodologies. To introduce the concept of self-learning, an attempt has been made to make the manual self-instructional so that it is:
Self paced (i.e., it allows you to work through it on your own);
Easy to read;
Easy to follow the instructions;
Illustrated with examples to enhance understanding;
Activity based to provide opportunities to reflect on and apply your knowledge while studying.
The contents of this training manual were selected by your fellow colleagues after they had attended a face-to-face training programme in Bangladesh. It was their consensus that the information in this manual would help others become efficient Tutors.

Handbook on In-house Style for Course Development

The design and development of this Handbook on In-house Style was conceived, authorised and inspired by Frances Ferreira, Education Specialist, The Commonwealth of Learning to facilitate adaptation of CXC CSEC curriculum in different subject areas at the Ministry of Education, Republic of Trinidad and Tobago for distance teaching-learning, and for development of self-learning course materials initially to facilitate persisters and dropouts of O-level to complete certification successfully, and later to offer as distance learning courses, within the basket of blended learning, for exclusive non-classroom learning and CXC certification.
Handbook Aims
The aims of this Handbook on In-house Style are to provide all those faculty engaged in developing self-learning materials for learners of open schools and distance learners at basic and school education with an understanding of how to develop new curriculum or adapt existing classroom curriculum for open schooling, as well as acquire the knowledge and skills involved in developing self-learning materials for school level distance learners. Examples from the context of open schooling have been provided which you can relate to your own contexts and discipline/subject area for developing and finalising modules and units.
