Evaluation of Computer Science Curriculum of Fiji Secondary Schools

"Evaluation of Computer Science Curriculum in Fiji Secondary Schools" was an attempt by the researchers to review Fiji's current CS/IT secondary school curriculum with a view to expanding it and making it more relevant and responsive to market and personal needs. The results of the research were submitted to the Ministry of Education for review and further action.

A Symposium was organised as part of the research methodology from 27th - 28th March 2003 at the USP Bure in Suva, Fiji. It focussed on sharing the initial results of the research, collecting qualitative data from the participants, develop recommendations and incorporate the qualitative data into the final report.

Arising out of the findings a Regional Workshop on ICT in Education was organised from 25th to 29th January 2005 at Raffles Tradewinds Hotel in Suva. The Workshop bought together educators, policy makers, civil servants, academics and other relevant stakeholders from Fiji (41), Tonga (2), Marshall Islands (1), Kiribati (1), Tuvalu (1), Solomon Islands (1), Samoa (2), Niue (2) and Nauru (2) to explore their country situation and draft systematic approaches to address the vision of implementing ICT education in their schools.

A paper titled Fiji's Information-economy and the Role of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Literacy Education in the Age of Broadband was presented by Ms. Maki Kato on 19th January 2005 at the Pacific Telecommunications Council - 27th Annual Conference & Exhibition in Hawaii.
