Issues in the Transfer of Instructional Technology between Nations.
Clark, Richard E.
Based on the assumption that educational technology transfers are vital to the continuing growth of all nations and that the issues connected with this activity are large and complex, this discussion addresses five major problems associated with international educational exchange: (1) inadequate understanding of the problem to be solved by technology, (2) conflicting theories which lead to conflicting employment of instructional methods, (3) misunderstandings about the science which underlies the technology, (4) vague definitions of technologies, and (5) unfortunate matches between problem and technology. After a review of the problems raised by each issue, suggestions for a solution or approaches which may lead to a solution are made. References are provided. (FM)
