The Plasma-Based Instruction in Ethiopia: Utopia or Dystopia?
Educational Research and Reviews, v8 n24 p2325-2338 Dec 2013
This article highlights the utopian and dystopian viewpoints held on the plasma-based instruction in Ethiopian by looking into the existing literature works and by analyzing attitudes of implementing bodies and implementers towards the program. The article identified that though implementing bodies were enthusiastic in developing and expanding the plasma mode of instruction across the country, the key implementers were apathetic in using the medium. These two extreme views (utopian viewpoints of implementing bodies and dystopian viewpoints of key practitioners) are found to be a great impact on the effective practice of the program. Based on the results, the study suggests a few practical ideas for the successful integration of the technology into the conventional instruction.
