A diverse set of technological tools and resources used to communicate, and to create, disseminate, store, and manage information. D efined as the basis for developing and using telecommunications and computer systems and digital information and communications systems in the broadest sense. ICT includes hardware , software and netware , as well as institutional , financial , cultural and application-related parameters that determine how ICT will be shaped and developed by society at large.

MTPDP 2004-2010 envisions ICT as a development tool

“ ICT will be harnessed as a powerful enabler of capacity development. It will therefore be targeted directly towards specific development goals like ensuring basic education for all and lifelong learning, among others.”

The education goal set forth MTPDP 2004-2010 is that by 2010 “[e]veryone of school age will be in school, in an uncrowded classroom, in surroundings conducive to learning. Three thousand school buildings a year shall have been built and a computer put in every high school .” The MTPDP provides for the wider use of computers to support teaching-learning processes, the promotion of e-learning and information literacy shall, and the establishment of e-learning competency centers.

integration of ICT in all learning areas, when appropriate

Curriculum & Pedagogy 2002 Restructured Basic Education Curriculum: Conceived as an interactive curriculum that promotes integrated teaching and interdisciplinary, contextual and authentic learning. “… [W]hat makes this curriculum interactive is the use of information technology and the greater emphasis on computer literacy in all the learning areas in every school where equipment is available.”

The use of ICT is “articulated in terms of skills in accessing, processing and applying information , and using educational software in solving mathematical problems and conducting experiments.” Curriculum & Pedagogy

FOCUS as much on the “soft” side of educational ICTs as the “hard” side. Capacity building , content development , community-building for sustainability are as important, if not more so, than getting the technology into schools. Three Challenges
