In response, many universities have created in-house Learning Technologies Centres to support teaching. Examples of technologies that are being used worldwide, or are emerging, include Course Management Systems, clickers (response pads), interactive whiteboards, platforms for remote learning, course recording and archiving tools, virtual worlds, blogs, and social networking. When considering the use of these technologies in Bhutanese education, one must understand and recognize technological and cultural aspects that require careful consideration and adaptation.
Hence, the evaluation and integration of learning technologies in Bhutan requires three components: expertise and experience in educational technologies, an understanding of existing technological constraints, and Bhutanese values such as GNH, social and environmental harmony. Judicious use of technology in education can create a bed for excellence, curiosity, innovation, and understanding.
