Technologies in Higher Education: Mapping the Terrain

Over a period of four years from 2010 to 2014, the UNESCO Institute for Information Technologies in Education has commissioned from international experts a series of policy briefs that — taken together — provide a comprehensive map of the terrain of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in education. Covering topics ranging widely from the role of ICT in globalization to ICT use for administration in education, these briefs, 28 in total, are an information-rich resource that can guide policy-makers, educational leaders, and educational practitioners to make more effective use of ICT.
