Integrating computer technology in teacher education
This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2007 Conference, Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda. The paper highlights some of the concerns among developing countries to introduce computer technology in teacher education and the nations’ classrooms in particular. The arguments in favour hinge on improving quality of education through improvement in quality of teaching and learning processes through the use of computer technology. The paper discusses the use of computer technology in exploring the constructivist dimensions of the content of science and mathematics curricula and helping the development of new curricula with a constructivist or social constructivist orientation.
