Synopsis

ICT4D: Information and Communication Technology for Development by Tim Unwin

ICT4D provides an authoritative account of the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in contemporary development practice. It combines theory with practical guidance - including both a conceptual framework for understanding the rapid development of ICT4D. Case studies provide detailed examples of issues and initiatives from a variety of countries and organisations. ICTs are becoming increasingly significant in improving the impacts of development practice. However, ICT4D projects in Africa, Asia and Latin America have not always been as effective as their proponents had hoped. This book explores both the successes and the challenges facing such initiatives, and provides clear recommendations for how they can be developed in more sustainable ways for the benefit of poor people and marginalised communities. ICT4D is essential reading for anyone involved in planning, designing or implementing ICT4D initiatives. N.B. Not endorsed by CIE, but can offer support material for CIE centres.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
