ICT reality check

This page in:

Great advances in mobile telephony and internet access seem to promise a revolution in development. But Chris Kreutz on the crisscrossed blog reminds us just how big the constraints are. Among other things, Chris reports on a presentation at the Web4dev conference, and even in South Africa the obstacles are large:

  • There is virtually no access to computers
  • There is limited access to knowledge and information
  • A child’s potential to learn is directly proportional to the knowledge of the teacher
  • Many people have never even typed their names on a keyboard
  • Where the edge of your world is as far as you can walk in a day

Check out the original post for the full reality check.
