The World Conference on Education for All, held in Jomtien (Thailand) in 1990 highlighted the timely significance of catering to the learning needs of all children, youth and adults, who have been excluded and unreached by the existing system of formal and nonformal education. ICTs can support education through various ways. We deal with the barriers in using technology for education in developing countries. The most notable barriers to the use of ICT in education are allocation of proper funds, level of teacher knowledge, government policies, and the gap between the various sections of society. Various recommendations such as the use of FM radios, television lessons, teleconferencing and continous monitoring of ICT projects are suggested to overcome these problems.
Date of Conference: 11-13 Aug. 2003
