Guest Editorial - Growing communities of practice among educational technology researchers and practitioners in development-oriented contexts: Linking local and global debates

Laura Czerniewicz, University of Cape Town, South Africa
Tony Carr, University of Cape Town, South Africa


Abstract
This editorial starts from the context of disparities in access between the North and the South and within the Southern African region. The authors then explore the origins of the papers in the e/merge 2004 online conference which was designed to support the growth of communities of practice of educational technology researchers and practitioners across Southern Africa. This special issue represents a shift from a timebound community of practice event to publication within an ongoing community focussed on the use of educational technology within and across developing countries.
