Abstract

The Ecuadorian educational setting promotes teaching strategies that are still built upon traditional educational models. The potential of new learning models and information technologies is neglected and little interest is shown in including ICT as a catalyst to foster innovation of education in general. This paper is about an Innovation Educational Program for elementary education in the Santa Elena Peninsula in Ecuador. The project seeks to develop creativity, critical-thinking and problem solving in primary school children with the support of ICT. A major part of the project is focused on teacher training. The study monitors and follows teachers and pupils during a 6-year period. In this paper part preliminary results of the teacher-focused studies are presented. This sub-project focused on the analysis of video materials and surveys that research the current dominant teaching - learning strategies adopted and promoted by teachers in the Peninsula Project.
