Human Resources for a Learning Society

  • Nagy K. Hanna
Part of the Innovation, Technology, and Knowledge Management book series (ITKM)


While ICT provides efficient tools for building a modern, knowledge-based economy, it is the quality of the human capital that will ultimately determine success or failure. Skilled human resources are a necessary condition for leveraging available ICTs and for re-inventing them to get closer to the realities and needs of developing countries. As discussed in  Chapter 2, the implications of the ongoing ICT revolution for education and learning are pervasive and profound, both in terms of the demand for new knowledge and skills and the capacity and modes of supplying such knowledge and skills.
