Mohammad Hadi Hedayati, Mart Laanpere

Abstract


This paper examines how Information Communication Technology (ICT) is, and how it is supposed to be taught in vocational institutions in developing countries. If the world is truly flat, ICT education in Afghanistan and Namibia would be similar to what you might find in Estonia and other developed nations. We focus specifically on what ICT skill qualifications are available to students.  The way in which different countries are addressing this realization, and which competences they are offering in ICT study programmes with the consideration to the labour market needs, is the focus of this study. Such comparisons are demanding, because of the multiplicity of educational systems. Yet, there are some lessons we can learn from the international experience.Current challenges in Afghanistan’s ICT Technical Vocational Education curricula, which can enhance the delivery of teaching and learning activities, are also analysed
