Thanks for your comment, Nevine.
I actually added the 'and people' part when paraphrasing him, but I suspect he would not be too upset by this amendment. So many of the conversations I am privvy to related to technology use in education in challenging environments seem to be, in part, about 'getting around' various human capacity restraints. (For those who don't work in international development agencies, 'human capacity constraints' is basically a rather opagque circumlocation for what normal people might call 'a lack of people with the necessary skills to do ___'.). Yes, where projects are designed well, you may be able to overcome certain human capacity constraints through the use of certain technologies -- but you'll probably run up against new capacity constraints as well that you hadn't considered. Ignoring -- or being ignorant of -- them won't make them go away, you'll need to plan/adapt/adjust/learn in this area as well.
