Using Technology to Enhance Aboriginal Evaluations
Johnston, Andrea L. K.
Canadian Journal of Program Evaluation, v23 n2 p51-72 Aut 2008
With a focus on the use of technology when evaluating programs for Aboriginal people, this article explores the possibility of using visual and oral computer technology to enhance the incorporation of Aboriginal worldviews in program evaluation. The author situates Aboriginal worldviews, including methods of communication and transmission of knowledge, within a unique evaluation framework that also considers Western methods of data collection. Examples of the author's framework are offered in the context of evaluations of Aboriginal programs. Based on her experiences, the author concludes that it is possible to join the traditional knowledge of Aboriginal people with digital technology in program evaluation. (Contains 11 figures and 4 notes.)
