Abstract

This chapter reviews the effects of technologies on learning opportunities and outcomes of students in developing countries. We found relatively little impact of information and communications technologies (ICTs) on learning, only a few small-scale interventions that demonstrated positive impact under specific conditions, few large-scale ICT programs with positive impact, and a poor connection between research results and policy design. We recommend further and better research on both context- based and large-scale program designs.
