Abstract
This short country report, a result of larger Information for Development Program (infoDev) - supported survey of the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in education in Africa, provides a general overview of current activities and issues related to ICT use in education in the country. As a country recovering from a devastating civil war that destroyed its infrastructure, Sierra Leone has huge gaps in both ICT policy-making and implementation both at the national and educational levels. An ICT policy has still not been finalized, and the education sector has no systematic policy of integrating ICTs at all levels. There seems, however, to be a strong governmental will to make ICT a core component of its education reforms.
