Abstract

Utilizando información individual de estudiantes que asisten a las escuelas oficiales este documento examina el impacto del programa Computadores para Educar (CPE) en varios resultados educativos. Este programa otorga computadores a las escuelas beneficiadas y brinda entrenamiento a los maestros de estas para el uso de las Tecnologías de la Información en la pedagogía y el aprendizaje. Específicamente, se analiza el impacto del programa en la tasa de deserción, el logro escolar -medido a través del puntaje estandarizado en la prueba de Estado Colombiano SABER11 (Examen ICFES)- y en el ingreso a la educación superior. Los resultados indican que el programa CPE disminuye la tasa de deserción, incrementa los puntajes de las pruebas estandarizadas y aumenta la probabilidad de ingresar a la educación superior. Además, se encontró que entre más tiempo lleve la escuela como beneficiaria del programa los efectos sobre las variables mencionadas son mayores. Los resultados son robustos frente a distintas especificaciones y grupos de control y se mantienen al utilizar variables instrumentales para corregir problemas de posible autoselección de las escuelas o de variables omitida.
