Appropriate, relevant, and purposeful educational uses of technology in developing countries.

January 21 - 23, 2010, Maputo, Mozambique

    NEW Find the updated version of proceeding papers at Andrew Smith's server in Meraka/CSIR.

    The goal of this sixth international workshop is to bring together researchers, businesses, educators, governmental and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to discuss appropriate and relevant applications of technology in educational programs in developing countries. Organizations such as the World Bank and UNESCO are encouraging developing countries to utilize technology in the creation of a knowledge economy. Unfortunately, this push results in an all-too-common problem of using technology for the sake of using technology without sufficient thought to the educational purposes and benefits. The aim of TEDC 2010 is to discuss the role educational technology can play in social and economic development in developing countries.
