School-Based Teachers' Professional Development through Technology-Enhanced Learning in Bangladesh
Shohel, M. Mahruf C.; Banks, Frank
Teacher Development, v16 n1 p25-42 2012
To promote significant pedagogical change, the most successful teacher education programmes for the global south happen in the school context. This paper is based on a pre-pilot intervention study of an international education development programme in Bangladesh. Technology-enhanced learning, in this case the use of the Apple[R] iPod[R] (iPod touch[R]), was used to support teachers' teaching and learning in their school contexts. This paper presents evidence to demonstrate how such school-based technology-enhanced support systems impact on classroom practice and help teachers' professional development. Using the case of a pre-pilot intervention in the Underprivileged Children's Educational Programs schools, it explores the teachers' professional development by analysing interviews with the teachers who were participating in the pre-pilot intervention programme, and draws the conclusion from the collected data that school-based teachers' professional development through technology-enhanced learning is contributing significantly to in-service training in a resource-constrained context.
