A regional report on ICT integration and e-readiness in schools across Asia

A regional report on ICT integration and e-readiness in schools across Asia | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it

In countries like the Republic of Korea and Singapore, OECD member countries in Asia, governments have made commitments that outstrip those of some of their European counterparts. But, for many other countries in the region, the school-aged population has little or no access to ICT in the classroom.
