ICT education in Vietnam: Diving into the second wave

Nykvist, Shaun S., Lloyd, Margaret M., & Vui, Tran (2003) ICT education in Vietnam: Diving into the second wave. In International Conference on Computers in Education, 2nd -5th December, Hong Kong.


This paper will describe the conduct of a Masters course in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in a Vietnamese university. The authors of this paper comprised the teaching and unit planning team. Engaging higher degree students in Masters level programs in the use of ICT in teaching and learning would appear to be diving directly into the "second wave," bypassing the potentially constraining experiences of the "first wave." The findings of this paper will be drawn from anecdotal observations and from student responses to an electronic discussion forum. This paper will conclude that diving into the "second wave" of technology is fraught with many challenges and requires major school and curriculum reform.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
