Harnessing Information and Communication Technology for learning and skills developmentThe potential of information and communication technology (ICT) to train and educate communities that have limited or no access to formal education channels will be the focus of an international conference to be opened by UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura at UNESCO Headquarters, and broadcast live on the internet, from 11 to 13 May.
The conference, “ICT for Capacity-Building: Critical Success Factors” will bring together local leaders, community educators and experts in learning from all continents, from as far afield as Brazil, Afghanistan, Senegal and Jordan. The discussions will focus on the critical success factors in using new delivery methods for learning and other skills development, especially for marginalized groups such as rural villages, urban poor, refugees, the visually impaired and those suffering the HIV pandemic.
