Bassi, R. (2009) ICTs in Education (ICT4E): Policies and Plans Worldwide Dublin Ireland: Global e-Schools and Communities Initiative

This document provides online access to the plans and policies for ICTs in education for 193 countries, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe. It also includes an excellent list of references on national plans and policies for e-learning.

The Global e-Schools and Communities Initiative (GeCSI) is an interesting organization, based in Dublin, Ireland. Its vision and mission is:

‘a world where every person has equitable access to knowledge, and the ability and capacity to create and share knowledge for society’s overall development. Our mission is to advise, support and work with Ministries of Education (MoEs) in the developing world to make informed strategic choices and decisions about ICT in Education.’

For an excellent blog on the main conclusions to be drawn from this report, see

Alexandra Drexlar (2010) Learning from GeSCI’s Report on ICT in Education, January 21

The Global Learning Portal contains many postings on the use of ICTs in developing countries. The Global Learning Portal (GLP) is an independent multi-stakeholder alliance launched by USAID, AED, and Sun. GLP is a global innovation network and platform for educators to collaborate, share content and knowledge, and acquire skills. As of August 2009, GLP has more than 4,000 registered users in 169 countries and territories.
