Before any ICT-based programme is launched, policymakers and planners must carefully consider the following: It is cheaper, and easier, to introduce a form of technology into education, and keep it working, where education is riding on the back of large-scale developments by governments or the private sector.
Ideally, these should be addressed in pre-service teacher training and built on and enhanced in-service.
In some countries, like Singapore, Malaysia, and the United Kingdom, teaching accreditation requirements include training in ICT use.
In Egypt, which UNHCR estimates is hosting some 127,000 Syrian refugees (registered and awaiting registration), more than 1,500 Syrian refugees were detained for weeks or months, and many then were coerced to leave the country, according to Human Rights Watch. Amnesty International accused Jordan, which has taken in more than 544,000 Syrians, of forcibly returning hundreds of Syrians to their home country in violation of international law. Number of Syrian refugees in Turkey exceeds 600,000 – Turkish official.
Jordan estimates the total cost of hosting Syrian refugees in 20 will top billion, further taxing schools, hospitals, and other infrastructure.
And gradual retirement can be beneficial to societies, employers, and workers: In cases where individuals are unable to take advantage of phased-in retirement—due to health issues, family obligations, or skills mismatch—governments could promote and reward volunteering, care work, and artistic work among the elderly.
