Recognising that ICTs are powerful tools shaping people’s everyday lives, practitioners, policy-makers and academics in the ICT for development (ICT4D) field engage with these technologies in the name of “development”. Yet understandings of development differ and too often remain implicit and removed from participatory processes involving the intended users.
Whose choice? ICTs for “development” and the lives people value
Photo: Malawians pose for a quick photo. (Getty Images) If you're one of the bazillion Americans (confirmed statistic...) already lining up for the next generation iPhones or Androids, recent college grad Josh Nesbit wants you to consider this: The old phone you may be tempted to ditch is a lifeline waiting to launch. Four years ago, while enrolled at Stanford University, Nesbit spent a summer volunteering at an AIDS clinic in Malawi, where hospitals are not easily accessible for many residents in rural communities. He witnessed sick and injured locals traveling up to 100 miles for treatment, consuming valuable time, resources and energy just getting to facilities.
‘Hope Phones’ Saving Lives in Malawi
A case study in a rural area of Puno (Peru) shows how mobile phones are used and incorporated in everyday life activities. These include both agricultural and livestock activities and participation in weekly fairs. Everybody has a mobile phone : this is what several individuals interviewed in Puno (Peru) told us in the context of a case study we developed in 2008. However, a representative survey in the same area of study revealed some nuances: mobile ownership only represents 56% of the population. Moreover, use surpasses ownership as 76% of the surveyed population declared to be mobile phone users –that is, they had used a cell phone in the previous three months. As in many other rural areas around the world, mobile pay phones are commonly used and owned handsets are shared among family members.

Making money with mobile apps
October 20, 2011, 8:00 AM — So you're a developer and you want to strike out on your own and get a piece of that lucrative mobile-apps market. Who can blame you? Research firm Gartner predicted last January that mobile application revenue would nearly triple this year to $15.1 billion from $5.2 billion in 2010. A month later, rival analyst firm Forrester Research upped the ante, forecasting that mobile-app revenue would hit $38 billion by 2015, with tablet app sales comprising $8.1 billion of that total, up from $300 million last year.

Copyright 9/27/2009 By: This is the best time in history to be a teacher-librarian. Major shifts in our information and communication landscapes present new opportunities for librarians to teach and lead in areas that were always considered part of their role, helping learners of all ages effectively use, manage, evaluate, organize and communicate information, and to love reading in its glorious new variety. A school’s teacher-librarian is its chief information officer, but in a networked world, the position is more that of moderator or coach, the person who ensures that students and teachers can effectively interact with information and leverage it to create and share and make a difference in the community and beyond.
Developing a School or District Technology Plan
ISSUE: To realize the benefits of technology, schools must develop a plan for integrating technology into the curriculum. An effective technology plan is based on the shared vision of educators, parents, community members, and business leaders who have technological expertise. It ensures that technology strengthens existing curricula and supports meaningful, engaged learning for all students. It also specifies how the technology will be paid for and how its use will be supported. OVERVIEW: Because technology continues to play an important role in modern industrial society, integrating technology into the schools will help prepare students to succeed in a rapidly changing world.
