Guidelines for Developing Network Based Education in Vocational Schools.
Moreno, Janette; Helenius, Marika; Viteli Jarmo
The VETO project is part of the Ministry of Education national strategy to develop an Information Society Program in Finnish schools. The focus of the VETO project is to develop and identify relevant guidelines for the implementation and integration of network based education solutions in vocational schools. The purpose of this study was to evaluate how and what kinds of learning contexts and processes network based education support in vocational schools and the workplace. Several questions guided the study: What teaching practices (pedagogy) did network based learning environments support in vocational schools? What delivery and productivity tools were used to create and design network based learning environments? What usability issues were associated with network-based learning environments in vocational courses? What implementation strategies did vocational teachers use? Three major indicators of technology integration were identified: netpedagogy, technology, and usability. These indicators were studied within the context of vocational teachers' planning, implementation, and evaluation. (Contains 21 references.) (AEF)
