The first paper was present by Mr. Prakash Nair from the United States focused on the Monies already spent today on school facilities which can directly and positively impact the educational bottom line and dramatically improve student achievement.
He stressed that capital spending should be seen not just as a way to rebuild existing schools, but rather as a catalyst to reinvent education so that students are better prepared for life and careers in the 21st Century. Another paper by Dr. Micheal Mc Vey also from the United States, touched on the wide usage of computer technology in schools throughout the world.
