Abstract [en]

In low technology context, such as Cuba, a special challenge is how to deal with scarcity of resources and develop alternatives ways that permit access to advantages of digital technologies. Here initiatives and creativity in using learning environments becomes essential. The VET system in Cuba is expected to meet work market’s needs, and at the same time, VET is given an important role in social inclusion. A main challenge for the VET system, in particular since 1990s and up to day, is how to meet technological development internationally given the graduate access to knowledge of these technologies, and at the same time, satisfying local needs that are often not related to highly developed devises. The aim of the study is to identify how the challenges are dealt with in policy documents and teaching materials and to investigate teachers’ perceptions of the challenges and how to meet them. The study uses text analysis and interviews as research methods. There is no intention of generalization but the study attempts to provide an insight into the challenges in meeting technology and how they are dealt with in a particular context of limited resources. It is expected to be of value both for policy makers and for practitioners.
