Abstract

The following study examines the implementation of learning technologies in Guyana, South America. Specifically, the study addresses the impact of using interactive radio instruction for teaching mathematics and SuccessMaker software for enhancing literacy skills. The research results were based on surveys, interviews, classroom observations, and focus groups but also benefitted from access to government statistics and qualitative expert reports of classroom use of these technologies. The results underscore the importance of rooting technology potential in constructivist teaching approaches and ensuring that good pedagogy leads technology. (Contains 1 table.)
