Abstract

South Korea is an exemplary case of rapid economic and educational growth. Central to this growth have been decades of continuous investments in education and human capital, in which the integration of technology in education has played a major role. This is a sharp contrast to Latin American countries, where educational technology plans are short-lived, lack continuity, and are strongly affected by changes in political administrations. As seen in South Korea, educational technology should be part of a long-term investment plan that is carried out irrespective of changing political administrations. Here we describe characteristics that contribute to South Korea’s educational success and how they can inform Latin American education policies.
