The Technology Transfer of the ICT Curriculum in Taiwan
Huang, Teng
Asia Pacific Journal of Education, v35 n4 p407-422 2015
Focusing on the process of "technology transfer", this paper aims to critically examine the production and usage of the information and communication technology (ICT) curriculum, and discusses its possibilities. It is found that the goals in both of the two stages of the ICT curriculum in Taiwan were rather "rhetorical". Three problems are then discussed: an "inevitable" discourse, but opposed to its original intention, the exclusion of instructional issues, and the exclusion of students' life experience and reflection. Finally, three possibilities for the ICT curriculum are proposed: expanding educators' understanding of the ICT curriculum, developing an ICT curriculum beyond the dominance of ICT experts, and rethinking the role of teachers in the implementation of the curriculum.
