Pro-poor approaches to using technology for human development: Monitoring and evaluation perspectives 1
First, we need to ask why ICTs might be an important key to the pro-
moting the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) of educational
equity. There are multiple answers, such as those below:
ICTs have the ability to deliver high-quality materials directly to the
learner, without having to “transit” through a teacher or textbook
(both of which may be “out of date”).
ICTs are easily and cheaply replicable, for example, on CD-ROMs.
ICTs increasingly have the capability of providing tailored materials
that are language-sensitive, gender-sensitive, and attractive in other
ways to the learner.
ICTs are inherently motivating. There is no country in the world that
has children and youth that are uninterested in ICTs
