Education Beyond Borders

What is The Place of Developing Countries in Educational Technology Connections?

For the second time, the online Global Education Conference was held between November 14th and 17th with global professional connections among educators and learners featuring prominently. It emerged that technological capabilities are enormous but it did not escape me the reality of developing countries when it comes to how well they can fit in the trend. With poor infrastructure, resources and connectivity ranging from electricity and hardware to skills, it appears that these countries have a long way to go. 

The closest for the majority to getting connected is via mobile telephony. Nonetheless, the handsets available are low-end with limited capability and save for educators, they remain prohibited for learners within institutions.

The question, then, is what is the place of developing countries in managing global connections heavily reliant on technology?
