Computer use in Korean schools: Instruction and administration

Computers & Education Volume 26, Number 4, ISSN 0360-1315 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd


Computer use in education is now commonly practiced and becoming increasingly important in educational endeavors. The success of school computer education depends on how schools implement computers. However, little up-to-date information is available on the use of computers in Korean schools. The purpose of this research was to investigate the present status of computer use for instruction and administration in Korean schools. To serve this purpose, a survey was conducted in December 1994. Overall, Korean schools have a relatively large amount of hardware and software due to strong governmental support. However, while the quantity of hardware and software abounds, problems exist in hardware function, software distribution, teacher training, and school policy on computer education. Data collected in these initial stages of educational computer use in Korea will be useful to guide the Ministry of Education's policy towards computer education.
