International agreements such as the Education for All (EfA) goals and MDGs have contributed to higher enrolment rates of children and youth in primary and – to a lesser extent -secondary and vocational education. Despite these positive trends, access to education – particularly for girls – remains a problem.
In addition, quality of education is often low. The Dakar Framework for Action (April 2000) identified the use
of ICT as one of the main strategies for achieving the Education for All goals and improving both access to as well as quality of education. ICT makes monitoring of progress in education easier and is a source of motivation for both learners, teachers and school management. ICT empowers key stakeholders (including parents) to influence and monitor the performance of schools and lobby for better education quality and performance.
