Integrating Information and Communication Technologies into Communication for Development Strategies to Support and Empower Marginalized Adolescent Girls
This paper examines the potential that information and communication technologies (ICTs) present for marginalized, adolescent girls in developing countries. The authors discuss gaps in access to technology and risks for this population before analyzing specific ICT initiatives, trends, and the perspectives of adolescent girls interviewed from 13 developing countries. The conclusion features recommendations for development agencies, policymakers, and civil society organizations to integrate ICT tools in a way that effectively targets marginalized girls.
774 million adults (aged 15 years and older) are still unable to read or write and two thirds of them (493 million) are women.
This comprehensive report looks at the ways information and communications technologies can enhance learning when procured and implemented knowledgeably. The report suggests that technology can compensate for poor teacher quality, benefit special populations, and have the greatest impact when made part of the overall focus within teaching and learning.
The Global Partnership for Education, as part of its Open Data Project, has assembled, from thousands of education data points, data webpages for developing countries.
This multi-color, interactive guidebook maps low-cost, high-impact classroom resources, teacher development strategies, and student encouragement mechanisms and labels them "micro-innovations" deployable around the world.
