Educational Technology and Reform in Quebec

Abstract

Arguing that the acceptance of educational technology in Quebec is influenced by issues of economic survival and cultural identity, this paper discusses educational technology in terms of three types of media--computers, broadcast media (radio and television), and print media. Selected educational operating systems are also discussed. A search of the ERIC database is cited to show that, of these media, television has received the most attention from Canadian researchers in the past 7 years. It is noted that: (1) political, economic, and cultural considerations have played a role in broadcasting in Canada; (2) the federally sponsored Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has evolved as a two language system on both radio and television; and (3) the Quebec government also supports Radio Quebec on radio and television. It is concluded that educational technology and greater communications among all concerned about education and community development may evolve new paths of education and national identity, building on what is, what was, and what might be.
