Empowering girls and women through the use of information and communication technologies

Language: EN

Posted by Eva ALOS MELCHOR

Information and communication technologies (ICTs) contribute to literacy and numeracy by enhancing access and outreach, motivating learners to engage or re-engage in learning, improving the quality of teaching and learning, and boosting the possibilities for lifelong learning.

Several case studies in this volume explicitly highlight the potential of ICTs to empower women and girls, for examples those from Cambodia (Pink Phone), Iraq (Civic Education Information Service for Female Iraqi Leaders), Kenya (Empowering Self-Help Groups through ICT for Better Education) and Senegal (Literacy Project for Girls and Women using ICT).
