Educational Technology in International Development Education.
Many developing countries face severe problems in their education systems, and their search for solutions to these problems is conducted with great urgency. An important area where possible solutions are being examined is educational technology. This paper examines five questions which are important to its use in developing countries: (a) what are the main problems of education in the developing nations; (b) what is educational technology; (c) to what problems has it been applied and with what results; (d) what new approaches, developments and innovations are being prepared which are relevant to the developing nations; and, (e) what things must be done in educational technology, if it is to be truly responsive to their needs? In summary, it is concluded that developing countries must be shown the cost-benefit of educational technology. A bibliography is appended. (Author/MF)
