Resumo

A presente contribuição faz uma revisão à introdução das tecnologias novas e antigas na formação do setor educacional em Gana. Mostra também como a recente proliferação das tecnologias multimídia no país encorajou, finalmente, a introdução das TICs na educação. Contudo, o autor defende que boa parte da motivação para introduzir essas novas tecnologias nos centros educacionais e instituições superiores não refletem a necessidade de reconceitualizar as práticas curriculares na formação docente, com o objetivo de fundamentar idéias construtivistas sobre os conhecimentos e sua produção. Sem isso, as reformas para introduzir as novas tecnologias de informação e comunicação nas aulas correm o risco de ser meramente ferramentas que, novamente, são utilizadas para reforçar as velhas tradições de ensino e aprendizagem com base na transmissão dos conhecimentos sem nenhum pensamento crítico. Por fim, o autor insiste que as mudanças curriculares para formação docente em Gana, e em outras partes da África, também se devem às novas identidades de aprendizagem profissional e experiências de aprendizagem promovidas pelas TICs e outras ferramentas midiáticas em aula.
