Abstract: The author shares his experiences, and limitations, in doing research in a culture of which he was not a part. His experience in developing educational technology in the Pacific region taught him that, rather than developing prescriptive strategies, it was better to develop and adaptive toolset which empowered students and teachers to customize learning materials to their own cultural contexts.
