This book looks at the current use of information technology in education and examines why the main objectives behind its introduction in this area have not been achieved. The various political, social and economic reasons behind the failure to maximize the use of informatics are examined on the one hand whilst, on the other, basic strategies and prescriptions are outlined for seizing the opportunities which will be presented by the availability of cheaper, more accessible technology in the future. One chapter describes in detail the situation in seven different regions, presenting the needs, possibilities, obstacles and prospects in each one. Finally, the book draws on the trends and issues that have emerged from previous experience in the planning and implementation of national policies to make proposals for improving the practices of international co-operation by using the full potential of informatics.
