Do you think ICT has a major role in education?

When I returned to the US from Korea I had been gone for 9 years. As I started my training as a high school teacher I was bombarded with so many changes since I had been gone. Many were cultural, you'd be surprised how different your country can become in a decade. But the other big changes were technological. Students and teachers no longer print anything, and they barely need a pen. All of the assignments are online and so are the grades, now there is no confusion about missing assignments or parents going unaware of how poorly their child is performing. Teachers now rely heavily, maybe too heavily, on outside resources.
As a teacher it makes everything much easier. The online video meetings, the online grade books that calculate and track for you, the ability to text and email other teachers and parents at any moment... it all makes the job much nicer. And the students don't lug around bags full of heavy textbooks either.
What I really would like to see is more 100% online courses. The kids don't need to wake up at dawn, they don't need to be transported to and from school, they don't need passing periods. Schools can be closed down for the most part and education done more flexibly in terms of schedules and proximity. The money spent on facilities and staff can be diverted into improvements in the education itself. Some might object and say schools allow kids to socialize, play sports, eat together, and they're taken care of while their parents are busy at work. If so, then kids should go to facilities for that purpose.
I teach 1-hour English classes online and correct essays with comments. Classes are ongoing, weekly, and flexible.
Contact me via private message to schedule a class.

An interesting insight.

I do agree that more time can be put towards learning at home, especially Primary and Secondary. The social aspect in Kindergarten and Nursery is far too important and learning cannot be done online.

Teaching has become easier with the vast amount of resources online. I believe it has actually inspired more to try out teaching as well.
