Implementing an Educational Technology Course in Namibia's Basic Education Teaching Diploma Program
Wilder, Hilary
Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, v20 n4 p467-492 Oct 2012
In 2006, the author worked on a pre-service education course in instructional media and revised it to include ICTs and technology integration, as part of a national program to infuse ICTs throughout Namibia's educational system. The course was to be implemented in 2008 at all four Colleges of Education in Namibia responsible for the Basic Education Teaching Diploma, along with a parallel rollout of supporting technology infrastructure, support and teacher-educator training. In 2010, the author re-visited the Colleges of Education to assess the adoption of the course. Using the ISTE Essential Conditions for effective technology integration as a framework, this paper reports on the progress made towards meeting each condition as well as the relative impact the conditions made on the course implementation. (Contains 2 tables and 3 footnotes.)
