e-Apprenticeship: Establishing Viability of Modern Technology in Traditional Practice
Hartwig, Bradley D.
E-Journal of Instructional Science and Technology, v10 n1 Oct 2007
In the Province of British Columbia there is growing emphasis on education mediated by computer technologies, or e-Learning technologies. Current Provincial initiatives encourage e-Learning technology utilization from K-12 through postsecondary levels. Under such political pressure it appears inevitable that apprenticeship training in the Province will also be expected to adopt similar e-Learning measures. The intent of this work is to identify the motivation for such changes, examine the educational feasibility of e-Learning as it applies to apprenticeship, and outline some of the non-educational considerations that must be made when undertaking educational reforms of this magnitude. Included in Appendix A is a pilot survey undertaken to establish the views of apprentices regarding the utilization of e-Learning; Appendix B contains the raw data gathered through this survey, which is used throughout to support the ideas presented.
