Despite that there have been real improvements in use and access of information and communications technology (ICT) around the world, there is tremendous evidence that suggests the growth of the digital divide between countries and within them. Many low-income areas still lack basic access to information and training, thus expanding the gap between communities in terms of quality of life, competitiveness and economic development.
There is no gap as obvious as it is in education. Students usually don’t have access to computers or software, and teachers don’t always get the training to know how computer technology can enhance the learning process.
Multilateral agencies and ONGs indicate that foundations and educational institutions have studied the scope and extent of educational barriers and access to ICTs, and most recommend the need for new educational paradigms - in addition to public-private partnerships to support them.
