Development of ICT
Together with the Information, Communication, and Technology development that was very fast, especially in the educational field, didn't close the possibility that the Future School will no longer needs the book. All of them are very sophisticated and instant. The lesson that will be sent was summarised in an Interactive CD, DVD, and other digital storage kind. The sending of the task was also enough by using the E-Mail. The search for the lessons material for a teacher or the students, could be looked immediately in the internet.
For example, what will happen in the River Oaks Primary School in Oakville, Ontario, Canada, had a special point of view that the school must be able to make the students entered the era of instant information with full conviction. This information was received from the presentation of Apple Computer in Auckland College of Education in New Zealand (1992).
Each student in each class can be connected with all the network of the school computer. This school didn't even have encyclopedia in the printed form. All over the library was kept in the interactive video diskette, CD, DVD, or any other digital storage kind -- could be accessed immediately by anyone, and in various forms. Each student in this school was a programmer and the designer of their own curriculum.
|CDs and DVDs can be used by students to store their tasks and documents.||Flash Disk is another easy alternative for students to store their documents.|
The Learning Revolution in New Jersey
Moreover, in the "The Learning Revolution" book by Gordon Dryden and Dr. Jeanette Vos was written that, the more spectacular achievement it was demonstrated by Christopher Colombus's Junior High School in the Union City, New Jersey. On the end of the 1980's, the value of the school exam was very low, and the number of absent students and dropped out of the school so high as far as the state broke to take over. More than 99% of the student came from the family that used English as the second language.
After two years, both the figure of dropped out of the school and the absent students dsecended almost to the point of zero. The value of the student of the standard exam increased by almost three times higher than in the general school throughout New Jersey. So, a small part of the benefit of technology in the educational field, so as really didn't close the possibility that the future school was the school without the book.
