Changing education through ICT in developing countries

Edited by: Marianne Georgsen, Par-Ola Zander

This book discusses how information and communication technology (ICT) can play a vital role in developing education and therefore developing communities, countries, and regions. Through examples of current research in developing countries, a number of highly relevant questions and topics are dealt with, such as: approaches to user involvement and participation in development * knowledge and its role in development, particularly in higher education * digital literacy and ways of developing it * pedagogic approaches * learning cultures in globalized education * teacher training and education. The chapters are written by members of the international research group on ICT for Development (ICT4D) at Aalborg University, together with researchers from around the world. The book concentrates fully on the relationship between ICT and development in the context of education. It will be essential reading for researchers, educational planners, policy advisers, students, and educators.
