Mary Wanjiru Ng'ang'a, Zachary Kosgei, Joyce Kanyiri Ict Adoption in Schools;

Information and communication technology has direct role to play in education and if used appropriately can bring many benefits to the classroom. ICT use in school management is important if its impact has to be felt in education. The perception and experience of teachers and school administrators play an important role in adoption of ICT schools. Computer use in Kenyan schools is still in its early phase despite the introduction of ICT the 70s. The potential of ICT as a tool to aid administration of schools has not been fully exploited.Despite the efforts by the stakeholders to integrate ICT in schools,the level of integration is low. Hence it is crucial to investigate the issues pertaining to the low level of adoption of ICT in schools. This study investigated the adoption and use of ICT enhancing efficiency in management of public secondary schools. The study findings are expected to be helpful to educational managers, policy makers and scholers interested in ICT use in schools and education sector in general.

Cabrera Julia Perspectives and Utilization of Spirituality in Social Work Practice

Spirituality is an important part of diversity as determined by the National Association of Social Work Code of Ethics and the Education Policy and Education Standards. However, social work education is lacking in this area. Social workers report feeling unprepared and uncomfortable in addressing spirituality with clients. The purpose of this study was to compare hospice, mental health, and hospital social workers' perspectives, utilization and education on the use of spirituality in practice. A total of 41 social workers were surveyed and answers were analyzed with a Chi-Square and One-Way ANOVA. There was no difference in perspectives of spirituality between hospice, mental health and hospital social work respondents. There were some minor statistically significant differences in the utilization and training components, but overall, they were low in all three groups.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2003 in the subject Computer Science - Commercial Information Technology, University of Regensburg (Economics), 66 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The Australian higher education system and its historical background can be compared to the German, as both systems are dependent on government funding. It was proposed that Germany could learn from the Australian higher education model at a conference in 1998 on the reform in higher education in Australia and Germany at the Australian Centre in Germany. Recent developments in the German higher education sector indicate more work is needed as the sector moves towards more internationalisation, for example, in the introduction of international study programs like the Bachelor and the Masters. This study gives an overview about the Business Informatics discipline in Australia with a strong focus on Business Informatics aspects at Australian universities. The approach taken to exploring Business Informatics at Australian universities was to conduct intensive interviews with eleven Australian IS academics within the following states and territories of the country: Queensland, New South Wales, The Australian National Capital and Victoria. In summary, Business Informatics in Australia is defined from a German perspective.

Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, , language: English, abstract: Universities are considered fundamental segment of the education sector that has been sensitive to external and internal environmental changes. It is evident that the universities in Kenya are operating in a different environment than they did since their inception and face the challenge of choosing which strategy to adopt to cope with this fast paced scenario. The choices made therefore will determine their success or failure. The objective of this study was to identify the determinants of strategic choice among universities in Kenya. This study was guided by contingency and resource dependency theories and reviewed past studies on the topic to identify a knowledge gap. The study employed a cross-sectional survey research design.

François van Schalkwyk Responsiveness and its Institutionalisation in Higher Education

Master's Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Pedagogy - Higher Education, grade: 70, , language: English, abstract: This thesis proposes a typology of responsiveness in order to reduceinterpretive ambiguity and to provide a framework which makes possible an assessment of the extent to which responsiveness is likely to be institutionalised in higher education. The typology is tested at two universities. The findings indicate that the typology developed can be deployed to reveal insight into how responsiveness is manifesting at universities. The findings around institutionalisation of responsiveness are less conclusive but indicate that while there is evidence of the institutionalisation of a particular type of university responsiveness, the process is at best partial as the academic heartland of higher education systems remain slow to accept the demands made by the state, university leadership and other stakeholders for more responsive universities.

Alan J. DeYoung Lost in Transition. Redefining Students and Universities in the Contemporary Kyrgyz Republic

A volume in International Perspectives on Educational Policy, Research, and PracticeSeries Editor: Kathryn M. Borman, University of South FloridaBeing a "student" has been and remains a highly desirable status for young people and their familiesin Kyrgyzstan. "Giving their children education" (dat detyam obrazovaniye) - meaning "higher education" -has become an imperative for many parents, even in a time of serious economic and social decline. The numbersof universities and university enrollments have increased dramatically - in fact quadrupled - since Kyrgyzindependence from the former USSR in 1991. All this is happening just as the overall system ofsecondary education has basically collapsed. School quality and outcomes of learning for most Kyrgyz youthhave become increasingly marginal - even as those who run universities widely proclaim quality improvementsand desires/intentions to join international higher education space. The book thus seeks to explain themanifest versus the latent functions of higher education in Kyrgyzstan. Relying on explanations of lived experience, the research attempts to explainhow the seeming contradiction of a declining resource and intellectual base of universities yet appeals to parents and students as the system continuesto expand with easily compromised accountability measures. The study approaches these topics by seeking to define what it now means to be a universitystudent in Kyrgyzstan, as well as what many state u...

Diploma Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Business economics - Economic Policy, grade: 1,5, Technical University of Ilmenau (Institut für Wirtschaftswissenschaften), 43 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This paper discusses the relevance of Information and CommunicationTechnologies (ICT) for economic growth in developing economies. By reviewing thecontributions from the neoclassical and endogenous growth theory and empiricevidences for the link between ICT and economic growth, the paper clearly concludesthat ICTs facilitate economic growth, principally by providing incentives for capitaldeepening and increasing productivity through rapid technological progress.However, the impact on growth is more extensive from the long-term ICT use and networking that though requires appropriate ICT investment and complementary efforts in order that spillovers and productivity improvements are triggered and exploited totally. This paper derives the key determinants and interacting factors that, in the corresponding correct synergic combination, promote ICT's impact on growth-generating processes. For a variety of reasons, the states of these factors in developing countries provide a less ICT favourable environment for taking advantage from ICTs. These economies exhibit a lower stock of human capacities and per capita capital to trigger the productivity benefits from the ICT use.Therefore, the level of effort is higher than in the developed world to receive...

ICT has been adopted as a means of teaching practice in most schools worldwide.Teachers are required to manage ICT and the digital realities of the 21st century with the aim not only to impart knowledge and to help their students develop their skills, but also to create educational environments and teaching opportunities that will exploit the potential of and benefit from the use of ICT. The transition from a traditional teaching/learning environment to an environment that uses and exploits ICT seems to create, in principle, a sense of novelty, an enthusiastic response from teachers and students. This book aims to familiarise teachers with the new ICT classroom environment so that they can educate students effectively and cultivate their ability to deepen the knowledge acquired to adapt it to their own personal, social and professional settings.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,3, University of Frankfurt (Main), language: English, abstract: "Education is no longer an asset achieved in youth that remains of constant value during a long and stable employment career without interruptions". The problem of continuous acquisition of knowledge has been a key object of research in education and training policy in the Europe. Since the treaties of Maastricht and Amsterdam, the term "lifelong learning" is directive in this context. In particular, the way continuous education is embedded in the work-related life course has been repeatedly investigated and analyzed in different supra- and international surveys. According to the adult education survey, participation in further training increased slightly during the last decade, indicating that in 2014, 59% of all German employees participated in further training, and 24% expressed the wish to participate. Increasing participation in activities associated with further training may have a positive impact not only on individuals but also on the social and economical development of the whole society. Therefore, the question of how to increase participation in continuous vocational training arises. Different sources predict that more and more companies will consider further training an investment in improved worker performance and economic productivity. Especially against the back...

They represent a promising way to lead developing countries on a path of more rapid development. But ICT for Development (ICT4D) is not only an issue of the development society. For many multinational operating software companies developing continents like Africa with a population of almost half a billion represent a huge, still untapped market. The German software company SAP AG for example is engaged in the African Drive Project (ADP). ADP is improving the South African education system by means of ICTs. SAP sees its engagement as an investment in future business areas and emerging markets in the developing world. But the corporate engagement of these big international players does not have to contradict the general aims and goals of the development society. On the contrary, the development assistance sees a crucial role in engaging in public private partnerships (PPP). The OECD notes that PPPs have become a general trend throughout the global economy.

Theodore Lee Professional Development of ICT Integration for Teachers

In past decade, the use of ICT in schools increased exponentially. However, ICT integration in teaching is still utilized at a low level. While many ICT professional development programs for teachers focus mainly on developing teachers' technical competency, the effect of their attitude, perception and emotion towards ICT integration is usually neglected. In this book, a social approach to professional development of ICT integration is argued to be important to improve ICT integration. A research was conducted to look at issues of ICT integration from the teachers' perspective and to explore the impact of peer support in enhancing ICT professional development. Based on the research findings, this book draws the focus on developing teachers' intrinsic motivation towards ICT integration. Peer support is found to be an enabler of intrinsic motivation. A sustainable peer support enhanced professional development model is thus developed. This book should help shed some light on developing ICT professional development programs for teachers and should be especially useful to teachers, professional developers and school leaders who want to lift ICT integration to a higher level.

Sergey Golunov The Elephant in the Room. Corruption and Cheating in Russian Universities.

This book offers a long overdue account of the wide range of corruption and cheating practices in Russian higher education, including bribery, financial fraud, clientelism, plagiarism, exam cheating, and much more. Serghei Golunov ruthlessly uncovers the recent social trends that have created a favourable ground for such malpractices and evaluates the efficiency of measures taken against corruption and fraud by various actors. Although corruption and cheating are so wide-spread in most Russian universities that the real value of their diplomas is very questionable, these problems are prioritized neither by higher education managers nor by foreign actors such as partner universities, participants of the Bologna process, or the authors of global university rankings.

Mohanty Sankar Prasad, Jena Subash Kumar Ict Literacy of Under Graduates

Information and Communication Technologies provide greater opportunity for students and teachers to enhance learning and teaching. Furthermore, the use of ICTs in education makes teaching learning more constructive. Hence, ICT literacy i.e., knowledge and skills on computer and other innovative technologies can foster better attainment in learning of children. Parental involvement (Education and Occupation of Parents) in child's ICT literacy positively affects children's academic performance and is a more powerful force for academic success than other variables such as social class, family size. This book is based on the concept that whether parental education & occupation is having any bearing upon ICT literacy of students.Some research studies reveal the impact as positive and others reveal as no impact, even both variables are not correlated. The authors of this book tried to present the findings in a very exploratory way. Hope, this book will cater the requirements of researchers, and other academia.

These are times of great opportunity and challenge for continuing education (CE) programs in colleges and universities. While lifelong learning remains central to CE's mission, means of promoting and delivering adult education programs through distance and online learning are undergoing tremendous technological transformation. Within institutions, CE units are increasingly collaborating with academic departments. In addition, demographic shifts have resulted in new audiences and types of programs offered, both credit and noncredit. School are pressured to increase their participation in economic development. All these changes carry administrative considerations. This volume suggests perspective and solutions for the challenges that must be successfully confronted by today's CE programs and the professionals who develop them. This is the 140th volume of this Jossey-Bass series. Noted for its depth of coverage, it explores issues of common interest to instructors, administrators, counselors, and policymakers in a broad range of adult and continuing education settings, such as colleges and universities, extension programs, businesses, libraries, and museums.

Toward Assessing Business Ethics Education

A volume in Ethics in PracticeSeries Editors Robert A. Giacalone, Temple Universityand Carole L. Jurkiewicz, Louisiana State UniversityToward Assessing Business Ethics Education, edited by Diane L. Swanson and Dann G. Fisher of KansasState University, is a sequel to their book Advancing Business Ethics Education in the Ethics in Practice IAPbook series. The focus on assessment in this second book is a timely response to the urgent search amongbusiness schools for ways to teach and assess ethics at a time when the public's faith in corporations andbusiness schools has been undermined greatly by the failure of both to respond to widespread corruption andscandals in the business sector. Although no one expects business education alone to resolve these problems,the distinguished scholars represented in this book advocate that business schools should at least do their partby exposing their students to decision models that incorporate ethical dimensions on behalf of corporate stakeholders and society at large. As thebook's title conveys, it is then important to assess key learning objectives to insure that business students graduate knowing ethics fundamentals andarmed with the ability to recognize ethical dilemmas and possible solutions during the course of their careers.This book will speak to all who are interested in accountability for business ethics education, especially business school deans, universityadministrators, faculty members, students, and prospective employ...

Altunay Tuba Eylul Student Profiles and the Reasons why they Prefer Private Universities

This survey research describes the profile of students who attend private higher education and explores the reasons why they prefer to study at private universities in Turkey. In this study private universities are ranked as "high- ranking, middle- ranking, and low- ranking" so that it will be possible to make comparisons between them, which enable us to understand varying dynamics of Turkish private higher education. Initially, this book draws the picture of students profile studying at three different ranks of universities by demonstrating their selected characteristics such as their age, socioeconomic status and gender. Then, it moves to whether the students' characteristics show differences according to three ranks of universities and student status (scholarship/non-scholarship students). In the second place, the reasons why these students prefer to study at private universities and whether these reasons differ according to three ranks of universities and student status are analyzed.Based on the findings ,it is possible to conclude that students characteristics differ depending on the ranks of universities and student status.

Nico Cloete, Tracy Bailey, Peter Maassen Universities and Economic Development in Africa. Pact, Academic Core and Coordination

Universities and economic development in Africa: Pact, academic core and coordination draws together evidence and synthesises the findings from eight African case studies. The three key findings presented in this report are as follows: 1. There is a lack of clarity and agreement (pact) about a development model and the role of higher education in development, at both national and institutional levels. There is, however, an increasing awareness, particularly at government level, of the importance of universities in the global context of the knowledge economy. 2. Research production at the eight African universities is not strong enough to enable them to build on their traditional undergraduate teaching roles and make a sustained contribution to development via new knowledge production. A number of universities have manageable student-staff ratios and adequately qualifi ed staff, but inadequate funds for staff to engage in research. In addition, the incentive regimes do not support knowledge production. 3. In none of the countries in the sample is there a coordinated effort between government, external stakeholders and the university to systematically strengthen the contribution that the university can make to development. While at each of the universities there are exemplary development projects that connect strongly to external stakeholders and strengthen the academic core, the challenge is how to increase the number of these projects. The project on which this report is base...

Wong, Brown UniversityThis compendium of papers documents educational ICT policies and practices in 37 countries, making it a valuable resourcefor understanding and comparing ICT-related national policy developments in education.

Document from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, University of Sannio, course: Entreprenership/Marketing, language: English, abstract: Europe aspires to increase its share of the international students market, in which the number of internationally mobile students is predicted to rise to 7.2 million by 2025. Entrepreneurship, as a relative "recent" and potentially high attractive field of study, could represent a strategic subject to enhance the attractiveness of European higher education, especially towards those students coming from countries where entrepreneurship education is less developed. Starting from the above considerations, this book aims: a) to present an extensive picture of entrepreneurship higher education in Europe; b) to analyze perceptions and intentions of potential target groups (i.e. foreign students); c) to design a suitable marketing strategy to improve the European entrepreneurship higher education offer and its share in the international students market, as a result of the previous analyses. To this aims, two different surveys have been managed. On one side, primary data have been collected on the presence of entrepreneurship education activities - from the undergraduate to the post-graduate courses - within the universities of all the 27 European Union member States.

The different forms of telepresence in education, in distance learning, in student support, in the use of learning environments or even at the heart of robot systems, are developed in universities and higher education facilities specializing in professional training. They constitute opportunities to reform arguments and give rise to important questions: how should we think about the hierarchy of presence and absence in these techniques in order to make possible “the presence of the absent”? What is the effect on mediation processes? On the perception of the body and on identity? How does it transform collaborative work? Telepresence in Training brings together research that attempts to answer these questions by using studies and practical supports from higher education, with regards to teacher training and telepresence robots in France, Belgium, Switzerland and Quebec.

After a decade, internet now reaches the Asian region as well as African countries intensively while USA, Canada and Europe are focusing newer inventions. Within the Asian region it exists considerably another technological gap among countries. The countries with higher income such as Japan, Singapore, South Korea has succeeded in implementing ICT in all social and economic areas. The rest of the countries, including China, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, are far behind in information technology. Nevertheless, it´s necessary for all nations, weather developed or developing, to keep on nurturing ICT development to be a part of connected world. The question is how a nation can successfully adopt ICT and benefit from all advantages at best. Unfortunately, there is no common guideline for all countries. Without identifying specific factors of each country and a lot of effort made by government, no country can achieve high ICT performance in the long run. The purpose of this paper is three-fold:To identify the characteristics and political options of a country, that would affect the success of ist ICT adoption. To identify clusters of nations upon the international ICT indices and GNI per capita To provide an overall guideline that incorporates these nations toward developing higher ICT indices.This paper shows income level and social background can play very important roles in country´s ICT development.

Business is the largest undergraduate major in the United States and still growing. This reality, along with the immense power of the business sector and its significance for national and global well-being, makes quality education critical not only for the students themselves but also for the public good. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching's national study of undergraduate business education found that most undergraduate programs are too narrow, failing to challenge students to question assumptions, think creatively, or understand the place of business in larger institutional contexts. Rethinking Undergraduate Business Education examines these limitations and describes the efforts of a diverse set of institutions to address them by integrating the best elements of liberal arts learning with business curriculum to help students develop wise, ethically grounded professional judgment.

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 2,0, University of Münster (Wirtschaftsinformatik), course: Seminar: Dark Side of Technology, language: English, abstract: This thesis aims at identifying dimensions in the individual's perception of time that are influenced by some dimensions of national cultures. Further, implications of cultural differences in these time perception dimensions for GVTs and the temporal coordination in GVTs should be identified. Additionally, the influence of ICT on the internal team processes and the team members' surrounding environment is assessed. Therefore, the current state of the literature with regards to GVTs, its relevance and problems as well as with regards to temporal coordination is reviewed. Moreover, time perception dimensions are discovered in the actual research, combined with existing cultural dimensions and applied on GVTs.The continuous progress in the development of modern information and communication technology (ICT) and the need for flexible responses to globalized markets trigger companies to frequently build global virtual teams (GVT). Most of the teams that are assembled in companies work at least to some extend virtually. The team members of a GVT are geographically and timely dispersed and collaborate through the use of ICT. Compared to face-to-face teams, these GVTs face several additional challenges, some of which are caused by the cul...

Higher education in America is the best in the world, but it is also desperately in needof reform. Lacking effective competition and insulated from market forces,universities have created a model fundamentally at odds with free market principles.In a system few outsiders comprehend, universities uniquely are run for the benefit offaculty.Increasingly, top universities have come to resemble closed academic societies.Admission is by way of a Ph.D. degree. Mastery of abstract research for its own sakeis the route to promotion and advancement. Teaching is of incidental importance fortenure - the goal of every academic. Achieving tenure assures long-term employmentwithout mandatory retirement plus freedom from inhibitions on speech or actions.Faculty share governance with an administration although faculty lack managerialskills or responsibility for their recommendations. Politically conformist, facultythink one way and recruit newcomers who think alike. Given time, institutions that donot attract strong leaders or demand accountability from faculty are destined tounderperform.Cracks in the seams of the current system are emerging in out-of-control costs andgreater competition. Lacking normal measures of efficiency or productivity, universities' costs tend to spiral higher - withfuture escalation a given. The trends are clear but not yet ominous.

For more than ten years, South Africa has been revamping its higher learning education system as part of a broader national reform movement aimed at overcoming the divisions caused by the now obsolete apartheid regime. The higher education sector has been transformed through a series of mergers and incorporations aimed at collapsing 36 universities and technikons into 22 institutions. Because of this, the concern about the new institution identity that will accommodate the merging institutions has become an issue of strategic importance. The identity of an institution matters because it creates identification.The identification produces strategic alignment and a unity of purpose between internal stakeholders and the institution. This book, therefore helps to shade light on the challenges facing brand managers in communicating their universities identity to students (strategic stakeholders)in a merged environment.And should be useful to corporate communication students.

Ratemo Waya Michieka Trails in Academic and Administrative Leadership in Kenya

Scholars, especially those interested in understanding how leadership has inhibited academic freedom and hindered effectiveness of institutions of higher learning have for long been engaged by the very important manner in which governance and leadership of higher education institutions in Africa is constituted and managed. The fact that there has been a dearth of work based on the experiences of those who have served as university leaders has created a major gap. Questions remain on how leaders of higher education institutions are identified, how they are prepared, the personal predispositions that individuals bring to the exercise of such positions and their personal experiences regarding what energizes or inhibits the performance of their work. Until recently, presidents in most African countries served as chancellors of public universities, identification of those who served as university leaders was largely a political process. But much has changed, with most countries establishing oversight bodies and the overall governance of higher education institutions divorced from the day-to-day political processes.Trails in Academic and Administrative Leadership in Kenya provides a personal account of the experiences in higher education leadership from an individual whose tenure in leadership straddled the two eras.
