Instructional Technology Research in Latin American.
Chadwick, Clifton B.
Both the broad field of educational technology and research activities in the more limited area of instructional technology in Latin America are examined. Research studies, the current situation, and/or research needs are reviewed briefly for each of the following areas: distance education; microcomputers; educational radio; learning strategies and study habits; instructional and text design; problem areas; behavioral objectives; democratization; student role; cognitive styles; and the effectiveness of educational technology in terms of its utility for educational systems in Latin America. Transfer and implementation studies are noted as being significant innovations in educational improvement in Latin America; and the importance of valuing the ideas, beliefs, interests, and role of the recipients of these innovations, giving them greater levels of participation in critical decisions, and responding to their cognitive styles and interests, is stressed. Most of the 50 references listed are in Spanish. (KM)
