Use of ICT Tools in Training Bilingual Education Teachers in Guatemala

Building on the Proyecto Enlace experience in the Quiché Province of Guatemala, this project ensured that the technology that had been introduced into Quiché teacher-training schools was systematic and sustainable and that educational leadership in the use and application of technology was cultivated. Project work focused on the following areas: (1) applying information and communication technology (ICT) to teacher professional development; (2) strengthening the existing ICT centers and establishing a minimum of seven new Bilingual Education Technology Centers of Excellence; (3) developing multimedia materials to increase access to resources and meet learning needs; (4) building educational leadership in technology through training; and (5) strengthening education-community links and enhancing demand to ensure sustainability. The project was part of the larger dot-EDU program funded by USAID and directed by EDC and several partners.
