This book presents discussions of how information and communication technology (ICT) can play a vital role in developing education and thereby 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 globalised education; Teacher training and education. The chapters in this volume are written by members of the international research group on ICT for Development (ICT4D) at Aalborg University together with researchers from around the world. This book is the first of its kind to concentrate fully on the relationship between ICT for development in the context of education. The book is essential reading for researchers, educational planners, policy advisers, students and educators.
