Abstract

In the past decade there has been an impressive growth in the use of computers in schools all around the world, and a rapid increase in the need for teachers trained in the proper use of information technology (Pelgrum & Plomp, 1991; Saloman, 1989). Computer-related educational practices for China, Japan, Thailand, and the United States of America (USA) are described in this paper, with a focus on existing teacher training goals and needs in the four nations. Comparisons are couched within a two-dimensional framework: East versus West and “developed” versus “developing” nation status.
