The ICT for Education working group of Educaid.be focuses on the use of ICT instruments, programmes and practices in education and training in developing countries.

Following on an international conference on the topic in 2017, Digital, Education and Development. How to be smart about it?, the working group now wanted to facilitate the exchange of best practices of and among Belgian actors during a half-day workshop.

Participants exchanged on 9 innovative education initiatives and tools with a digital component, implemented in a challenging environment with limited resources and high demands.
