ICT for Better Education in the Pacific

Publication | May 2018

This report takes a high-level look at how ICT has been incorporated into the education sector in the Pacific region, and provides recommendations on focal areas to drive further progress.

ADB’s developing member countries in the Pacific are gaining increased access to information and communication technology (ICT). At the same time, they are deepening collaboration across sectors, institutions, and communities. If planned and managed properly, developments in ICT can drive progress in education sectors across the region. This publication examines key opportunities for harnessing ICT to improve education outcomes and build the region’s most valuable resource—its human capital.
