The education sector was one of the first to embrace the use of ICT but despite the obvious benefits of students bringing their own laptops to the school and assistance packages in place to ensure that it’s a reality for all, e-education seems to be stuck in a rut. After an impressive start, development has slowed to a trickle and realising the dream of a true e-education system has proved to be difficult.
Initially it was rather hard to find out why that was happening. A range of education reforms have been tried over the last decade, but with limited success. They included competition-based school systems, vouchers, and pay incentives for teachers.
