infoDev’s Knowledge Maps on ICTs in education are intended to serve as quick snapshots of what the research literature reveals in a number of key areas. They are not meant to be an exhaustive catalog of everything that is known (or has been debated) about the use of ICTs in education in a particular topic; rather, taken together they are an attempt to summarize and give shape to a very large body of knowledge and to highlight certain issues in a format quickly accessible to busy policymakers. The infoDev knowledge mapping exercise is meant to identify key general assertions and gaps in the knowledge base of what is known about the use of ICTs in education, especially as such knowledge may relate to the education-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

    Knowledge Map : School-Level Issues
    (Washington, DC, 2008-01) World Bank
    Best practice exists for most issues relating to uses of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in education at the school level. Despite the wealth of documentation mentioned, little if any of this knowledge and information appears to have been incorporated into planning for and delivery of ICT in education initiatives in least development countries (LDCs), where the 'same old mistakes' are often made again and again. The greatest need related to this topic is for existing knowledge and information to be delivered to the relevant people in charge of ICT in education initiatives in LDCs, as well as those (in donor agencies, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector) who advise or contribute to such initiatives. Short workshops could be delivered to target countries preparing to scale up ICT in education initiatives to transmit such lesson learned.
