ICT in education

Information and communication technology (ICT) can complement, enrich and transform education for the better.

As the lead United Nations Organization for education, UNESCO guides international efforts to help countries understand the role such technology can play to accelerate progress toward Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4), a vision captured in the Qingdao Declaration.

UNESCO shares knowledge about the many ways technology can facilitate universal access to education, bridge learning divides, support the development of teachers, enhance the quality and relevance of learning, strengthen inclusion, and improve education administration and governance.

The Organization scans the world for evidence of successful ICT in education practices – whether in low-resource primary schools, universities in high-income countries, or vocational centres – to formulate policy guidance.

Through capacity-building activities, technical advice, publications, fieldworks, and international conferences such as the International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Education and Mobile Learning Week, and fieldwork, UNESCO helps governments and other stakeholders leverage technology for learning.
