Education is the total process of learning by which knowledge is imparted, faculties are trained and skills are acquired for the betterment of the individual. Education is generally a tool for emancipating the individual and the nation from mental slavery and poverty. It is also a tool for national development, since the effective exploitation of the natural resources of every country highly depends on quality of human resource base. Education can give the requisite training to the human resource for effective exploitation of the resources of a country.

General Educational expectations for the student do not necessarily follow the tradition of certified and accredited qualifications. This is to say that, the student pursues educational qualifications both accredited or not. For example, for the IT field, the student goes to the direction of open source, the success of RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) (an enterprise provider of OSS) and other successful OSS (Operation Support System) ventures inspiring the student to create jobs or seek self-employment and this inevitably resulting in the attendant growth of the world economy.

With regards to Higher Education, the Student overcomes the problem of distance, agreeing with researchers that ICT has led to the death of distance and thus enrollment in distance education programs.

Also, ICT has improved access to information by students, since they can now download e- books for free instead of buying them at exorbitant prices.
Students also carry their laptops and tablets to class which contain several e- books that they could not have carried in hard copy.

The student fights unemployment issues by sticking to Higher Education programs that are geared towards the vocational sciences to guarantee self-employment and job creation. They begin the learning process at an early age, thus becoming really acquainted with vocational/hands-on disciplines. They admit the inevitability of the Semantic Web, thus all learning of theirs is aimed in this direction.
Countries that are well advanced in ICT have well developed broader education, research and educational policies.
Informal and non-formal learning activities has increased dramatically with the use of ICT.
Students associate with such labels as: 'learning communities', 'project-based learning' and 'guided discovery'. Knowledge is socially constructed and best supported through collaborations designed so that participants share knowledge and tackle projects that incorporate features of adult teamwork, real-world content, and the use of varied information sources (Scardamalia & Bereiter).

“PCs and network technologies are not easy for everyone to master, yet many people are able to learn how to code often (or especially) without formal training.”
(Zittrain Jonathan, The future of the Internet and how to stop it; p72).

In addition, ICT has led to improved student learning and better teaching methods. A report made by the National Institute of Multimedia Education in Japan, proved that an increase in student exposure to educational ICT through curriculum integration has a significant and positive impact on student achievement, especially in terms of "Knowledge-Comprehension", "Practical skills" and "Presentation skills" in subject areas such as Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.
It is important therefore to incorporate ICT in all spheres of education in order to make teaching and learning more effective.

PGDE GROUP 5 knows how to learn, this being a very distinguishing factor.

PGDE GROUP 5 agrees with Siemens that there are some new skills learners need to develop. George Siemens, Knowing Knowledge (2006).
