Thanks to a classmate I found this great article on the World Bank website! In Uruguay, the national archives joined with the ministry of education to digitize key documents for use in newly digitized classrooms. I think it’s amazing that not only the national archives realized that they could play a pivotal role in the development of e-education but also that they stepped up to make things happen. Most importantly, administrators at the archives have put a system in place so that they can receive feedback from students and educators. The biggest problem facing this initiative comes during the monitoring and evaluation stage, because most of it’s positive results can’t be measured via testing. Even if we can determine this program’s impact, it will take years to determine which factors are most successful and to implement the appropriate changes.
