Abstract EN

This paper seeks to evaluate e-learning and ICT in the primary and secondary education in Palestine in light of the School-Led Initiatives (SLIs) on e-learning curriculum. It focuses on the e-learning project implemented at schools during 2012-2015, which was funded by the Belgian Technical Cooperation (BTC). We measured the most significant changes at the Palestinian Ministry of Education and among other project's stakeholders (e.g. schools' principals, teachers, students and their families). Moreover, we explored the impact of SLIs on the teaching and learning processes, using focus groups for data collection among the stakeholders. They were asked about the new teaching practices and the use of 21st century tools to develop the learning skills, such as problem solving and teamwork to lead others towards success. In addition, we inquired about the method of ICT employment in their initiatives as an essential tool for life skills. Results showed that there was a transformation in the teachers’ and students’ behaviors; as active learning strategies made teaching more effective and enjoyable. Moreover, underachieving and shy students participated in the learning activities. On the other hand, teachers pointed out that they still need more practice on the 21st century skills, and that the educational policies should encourage implementation of these skills at the national level, reform curriculum, as well as provide motivation, support and training for teachers. However, there were serious obstacles related to school infrastructure, curriculum density, school culture and ICT skills. For change, all stakeholders should be involved in the efforts to promote 21st century skills and redesign the curriculum, taking into account knowledge, learning methods and assessment.
