WS121: ICT Implementation in Education: Road-Map to Achieving SDGs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many issues and challenges associated with ICT and Internet implementation in education are known by policymakers. However, data on the nature and complexity of these issues remains limited because of the lack of good monitoring and evaluation tools and processes. Another problem in this area is the lack of a common set of indicators for ICT and Internet in developing countries. 
If ICTs and Internet are to become effective and integral tools in education, and if accountability is to be demonstrated to stakeholders, monitoring and evaluation must be a priority area of focus. It is also clear that there are equity and gender issues related to the use of ICT and Internet. There is a real danger that uses of ICT and Internet can further marginalize groups already excluded or on the edge of educational practices and innovations. With supportive policies and careful planning and monitoring, ICTs and internet hold out the promise of facilitating greater inclusion of such groups and reaching the SDG’s
ICTs and Internet governance is an important driver for educational reforms, help in anti-corruption efforts, aid in decentralizing education. There are still many policy questions around the adoptions and use of ICT and Internet in education that need attention by all stakeholders. Some of the key policy questions revolve around access, equity, gender, funds, best practices, security etc. This workshop sessions seek to discuss some core issues confronting the adoption, implementation and development of ICTs and Internet in education in the developing countries.
