Bridging the Knowledge Divide: Educational technology for development

Addressing the challenge of bridging the knowledge divide through the use of educational technology, this book is organized around four main themes: empowerment, knowledge, flexible delivery, and teacher preparation. Contributors to the discussion of these themes raise strong alarms about the potential pitfalls of the shift from a digital divide to a knowledge divide, calling for planned action. Drawing on their experience with education technology and distance education policy, theory, practice, and implementation in different societal and cultural contexts, in both developed and developing countries, some 40 contributors present roadmaps and strategies for planning and implementing educational technology that can bridge the knowledge divide.
