Children, ICT and Development
Capturing the potential, meeting the challenges
Dorothea Kleine, David Hollow, Sammia Poveda | UNICEF Office of Research – Innocenti | 2014
This report explores the ways in which information and communication technologies (ICTs) can contribute to efforts towards meeting child-focused development goals. The diffusion of ICTs has been highly uneven, and it is clear that digital divides not only trace but can also further deepen existing social divides, between income-rich and income-poor, between urban and rural dwellers, between women and men, and girls and boys. The report therefore supports UNICEF in efforts to further develop and disseminate good practice regarding ICT4D and children.
