Challenges and opportunities in ICT educational development: A Ugandan case study

Ryan S Wells, The University of Iowa
Susan E Wells, Iowa City Community School District


Abstract
This case study examines an organization which is partnering to provide ICT solutions for secondary schools in Uganda. Based on interviews and observation, we identify nine key transitions in this organization’s development. Each transition is characterized by a challenge that was faced and a solution that was implemented or attempted. We draw broader “lessons learned” from the results to inform similar development organizations. This study intends to contribute to the dialogue concerning ICT, education, and development and aims to expose some ways to build bridges across the so-called digital divide.
