Using Problem-Posing Concept in Taiwan's Computer Vocational Schools
AbstractThis paper discusses the computer technology teaching and learning discipline in Taiwan's vocational school. Students in the vocational school participate in a nationwide computer skill certification test. Students who pass the test will be issued a computer skills certificate at verifying their proficiency at certain level of computer knowledge and skills. In order for students to pass the nationwide computer skill certification test, instructors use the banking concept to teach computer courses. A shift from the banking concept to the problem-posing concept is necessary to transfer students' skills from memorization to learning and problem-solving.
