Information Communication Technology (ICT) Integration to Educational Curricula serves as a standard textbook in graduate and senior level undergraduate classes in colleges and universities to contribute to the existing mass communication and ICT literature. The textbook offers a multi-discipline perspective to students of mass communication and information technology and avails them an opportunity to have a valid research tool with great details to pursue their research and class assignments. It provides an essential platform for appropriate literature in mass communication, political communication, and ICT details with relevance to its integration in Africa educational curricula.

It includes contributions by scholars and professionals of African extraction with varied research interests on diverse issues relevant to ICT and its significant impact to curricula development and application to Africa as the new African educational system. The chapters cover a wide array of mass communication, diffusion of innovation, and ICT issues of diverse importance that will guide students, government agencies, and professionals in following the imminent and evolving changes resulting from the integration of technology to educational curricula.

Volumes of this nature are timely because within the past decade ICTs have become an essential part of the fabric of society. . . .Nwokeafor's book is very welcome, as an ICT driven social and economic development in Africa is urgently needed. . . .Cosmos Uchenna Nwokeafor's book adds to the few studies on the integration of ICT into African educational curricula by scholars outside South Africa and it is to be commended. * African Studies Quarterly *
It gives me much pleasure to endorse this work, the progress of which I had the privilege of following from time to time and with great interest. Information Communication Technology is of great importance to Africa-nay, developing countries of the world. The fifteen-chapter piece is a work that cannot fail to provoke thought; written positively yet with restraint, it makes a balanced presentation of the various topics that it deals with and comes to conclusions that are defensible even where controversial. I recommend this textbook very highly. -- Christian Nwachukwu Okeke, professor of law and director of the LLM and SJD international programs in international legal studies at Golden Gate University School of Law
