5G for Future Education 5G will enter the classroom and bring new ways of learning to students and what could be described as a revolutionary wirelessly connected educational environment. Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Virtual Presence will mean that students will be immersed in a more visual and interactive learning experience where students and teachers may not necessarily be in the same location. Teachers and lecturers will be able to gain an instant view on individual student needs via feedback on student activity and will be better equipped to deal with their needs. This will create new demands on educational IT networks where both fixed and wireless networks in both licensed and unlicensed radio bands will need to be fully integrated delivering a totally seamless service to educational organisations and students. This future Smart Classroom will require 5G and technologies. (Ref: GSA 5G Verticals Series http://gsacom.com/paper/5g-verticalseducation) 8 Intel Education Solutions

16 ITU WTDC-2014 ARAB STATES REGIONAL INITIATIVE ARB4: Smart learning Objective: To bring about a shift from traditional methods of teaching in schools and universities, using books and paper-based sources, to smart learning with the use of tablet computers, the latest software and modern telecommunication/ICT techniques to provide access to a range of academic information, resources and subject matters. Expected results Assistance to the countries in the following: 1) Eradication of digital illiteracy in the Arab region
2) Finding smart and low-cost computing devices, either with the support of Arab governments or by concluding agreements with manufacturers to provide such devices 3) Development of Arab educational econtent for schools and universities in the Arab region. How should we plan for the next four years (WTDC-2017) ? 17 Arab States Statistical Information (Source ITU, penetration rates) Fixed Broadband: 4.8 % Mobile Telephone: 109.9% Active Mobile Broadband: 47.6% Households with a computer: 44.6%
Households with internet at home: 45.7% Individuals using the internet: 41.6% We also need statistical information for ICT in education? -What percent of schools/classrooms connected with broadband and data rates? -What percent of schools are using modern ICT technologies (smart classes, smart boards)? -What percent of students/teachers are using ICT technologies at school, at home? -What percent of schools are using digitized textbooks and digital content? 18 Success Factors for ICT in Education Political Support Regional and national plans with time bounded goals. Coordination between Ministries (especially ICT and Education)
Funding mechanism 19 Recommendations Develop National/Regional Digital Transformation Plan (including ICT in Education for Digital Skills) with time bounded goals and an implementation plan. Prioritize ICT in Education (both in National and Regional plans) Get political support and provide coordination between relevant Ministries. Establish national/regional committees for the implementation. Provide financial source through USF and other sources. 20
