Abstract and Keywords

This chapter, concerning the ramifications of technology and technological change on teacher training and education programs, offers five points as essential. First, the role of technology in education is central. Second, technology can foster the development of teachers’ critical thinking. Third, teachers cannot be passive recipients of educational reforms and need to be in a position to shape their own and their students’ learning. Fourth, it is the social facet of technology that will play a leading role in teachers’ competence, credentialing, and professional development. Fifth, technology is becoming mature enough to allow us to re-rehearse the notion of evidence-based education in a completely novel way.

Keywords: role of technology, teacher attitudes, evidence-based education, self led development, empowerment
