Educational Technology and Teacher Education in Latin America and the Caribbean: A Plan for the Future.
Rojas, Alicia Mabel
Latin American countries have a long history in the application of educational technology to the improvement of teacher education. Even though past innovations, such as the Multinational Project on Educational Technology have been successful, there are still problems with the quality of teacher education. Apparently, processes have been improved without a careful examination of the link between these processes and achievement of desired results. A six-step model, developed by Roger Kaufman, takes both process and results into account. It is based on the application of the systems approach, a process for identifying, justifying, and resolving problems based upon needs. The process is composed of: (1) identifying the problem from needs; (2) determining solution requirements and alternatives; (3) selecting a solution strategy; (4) implementing that strategy; and (5) determining performance effectiveness.
