A new bottom-up architecture for development - Case studies in community informatics

2012
Type of resource: 
Notes from the Field

At IT for Change (ITfC), we focus on a grounded analysis and exploration of the possibilities that Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) offer for development interventions, especially in the areas of governance, gender and education. We have endeavoured to demystify technology, de-centre expertise, develop a critical awareness of the politics of techno-pedagogy, and promote collective ownership of  media and information processes at the community level.

ICTs - Reaching beyond the educated

IT for Change
2005
Type of resource: 
Policy Documents
This paper argues for a public goods approach to ICTs, education and sustainable development. The author discusses the inadequacies of the current engagement of ICTs in education. Shifts from classroom-based learning to pupil-centered learning have occurred, but by and large the manner in which the ICT opportunity has been employed in the education sector has failed to breach mental barriers and the boundaries of the traditional education system.

The presentation explains the need for state governments to move from 'first generation programs' where students only learn word, notepad, paint etc, bypassing teachers, to "second generation programs" - where teachers use software tools to create digital learning resources, and ICTs are used to achieve specific educational aims.
