Transcript and Presenter's Notes


  • Ministry of Education
  • Amman
  • The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan

  • The Ministry of Education has realized the
    importance of focusing on the human capital
    development factors in line with the future
    knowledge-based world economies. The Government
    of Jordan placed this as the highest among
    priorities for the country. This priority was
    indeed portrayed by His Majestys presence and
    active participation in the recent Education and
    high profile ICT Forums.

  • The Ministry of Education will continue the
    reform of its educational system, with emphasis
    on the incorporation of ICT, effective long-term
    usage of ICT in e-learning and eventually
    sustainable infrastructure for lifelong
    learning. Skills of the future critical
    creative thinking, problem solving and
    orientation towards research will be integrated
    in its ICT and training programs, rendering a
    richer and wider spectrum of benefits on all
    levels in the educational hierarchy.
  • The ICT training, leading this change, is in
    parallelism with the development of curricula,
    built-up of technological infrastructure,
    increased connectivity and development of
    assessment methodologies and examinations

  • Currently, more than 1650 schools are equipped
    with PCs, networking and basic peripherals, in
    more than 1724 labs. It is expected to have about
    1100 secondary schools, selected from different
    directorates, connected to the Internet by
    year-end, as part of an agreement between MOE and
    JTC. Other public schools will be connected
    thereafter at the rate of about 200 schools per
    month, in efforts to achieve full connectivity of
    all public schools by December 2003. Four schools
    have video conferencing facilities

ICT Strategies
  • In order to assess the training needs of the
    Ministry, a draft pyramid (hereunder), was
    designed so that various training projects are
    positioned and fitted in, in line with the target
    sectors, levels of courseware, and tied up
    whenever possible to the ranking system, thus
    providing added incentives. This pyramid also
    serves in identifying and honoring priorities.

  •           Efficient usage of the technology
    infrastructure of distributed computers,
    peripherals, teaching aids, networks, Internet
    connectivity, software, electronic and hard copy
    training material at the Ministry, Directorates
    and schools.
  •           Effective usage of ICT as a tool in
    teaching and learning, with long-term vision
    leading to life-long learning readiness and
  •           Mentoring and demonstration of the new
    skills and concepts in order to assist and guide
    new trends.
  •           Dependence of capacity building
    projects and training schemes, such as those
    based on Training-of-the-Trainers with long-term
    vision plans, so as to reach a state of
    self-sustainability and autonomy.
  •           Follow-up on all ICT training and
    ensuring that trainees are implementing what they
    have been trained on.

  •           Adopt programs that have International
  •           Develop online content and proper full
    usage of the upcoming e-portal system, which has
    the potential of putting Jordan at the Number One
    position in designing and implementing such a
    comprehensive e-portal that connects all of its
    educational system in the country, at various
  • .          Adopt appropriate measures, monitoring
    and evaluation systems for continuously assessing
    and evaluating the e-learning experience.
  • Stay updated with global ICT trends
    particularly those pertaining to educational
    systems and continuously track Jordans relative
    progress to such global trends.

  • ICT Skills have become the demand of the future,
    led by the Internet-related IT skills as number
    one, tied up to an exponential growth. There will
    also be a tremendous demand for Web-based
    applications, seconded by networking and
    programming skills. Anyone who wants to get a
    good job will have to have IT literacy.

  • Hereunder is a list of IT projects that are
    either being implemented or under study at the
    PMU / ICT Unit with the E-Learning Team and
    related Directories

    been in address to the digital divide or other
