ICTs in Education

Today technology is used to gather and share information, access job information, and develop awareness of the broader world. Disadvantaged populations who do not have access to or knowledge of information and communications technologies (ICTs) are trapped across a "digital divide," thus they are unprepared to enter the wider business world or even to continue their education to the university level.

World Education supplies teachers and schools with computers and tablets, and trains both teachers and youth in ICT skills so these technologies can enhance the quality of teaching and learning. Beyond classroom lessons, technology is used to improve school systems, such as tracking student attendance and performance to inform schools when interventions are needed. Mobile phone technologies are also used to access rural populations with educational messages to prevent child labor and help educate low income populations on basic financial literacy and positive small business practices.

In addition, World Education frequently develops online trainings and applications for students and teachers in the course of its work. Visit World Education's EdTech Center, an online resource that works to meet the evolving education and training needs of under-educated adults and youth through high-quality, innovative services aimed at increasing local staff skills and program capacity. The EdTech Center supports educators and local partners in the integration of digital technologies into instruction, promotes digital literacy and access to accelerate learning, college and career readiness, and offers mobile and online learning opportunities.
