Sanyal, Bikas C.
The phenomenon of technological development has assumed great importance in the contemporary world. It is reflected in unprecedented growth in productivity with accompanying labor saving, in improvement of quality of products, in the launching of new products and services, and in the development of new branches of activity. This document reports on a research project carried out in Algeria, the Cameroon, France, the former German Democratic Republic, Indonesia, and the Republic of Korea. National teams from each country assisted in the endeavor. This report is divided into three parts. The first elaborates on technological development, internationalization, the need for technological development, and the dilemma of educational planners in developing countries. The second part details the International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP) research programme and gives a summary of the major findings. Sections include the evolution of technological policies, impact on employment and qualification structures, the response of the formal education system, the state of government-education-industry relationships, and major implications for educational policy-making and planning. The final section details a summary of the respective case study for each of the six participating countries. Each summary provides the objectives , research methodology, and findings of the study.
